Training Presentation/Powerpoint:





Jidoka is a technique to provide machines and operators with the ability to detect when an abnormal condition has occurred and immediately stop the work. Also known as autonomation, meaning "automation with human intelligence", Jidoka is the tool of built-in quality and supports just-in-time production. With an effective Jidoka system in place, companies can ensure that defects are not passed on to the customer, equipment breakdown is prevented and operators can work on multiple machines instead of wasting their time watching them.
