Designing a poke-yoke into your systems and processes eliminates mistakes, product rework and raw materials waste. A poke-yoke forces the user to do a task only one way. An example of poka-yoke is the dispensing nozzle on a diesel fuel pump; it is larger and will not fit into vehicle that uses unleaded gas. The nozzle design prevents consumers from putting the wrong fuel into their vehicles.
