Autonomate (Jidoka)

The use of technology to Repurpose human operators by automatically detecting and calling attention to problems immediately whenever they occur (mechanical) and also equipping operators with the means to stop the production flow whenever they note anything suspicious (human), thereby preventing the waste that would result from producing a series of defective items. It also liberates operators from controlling machines, leaving them free to concentrate on tasks that enable them to exercise skill and judgement instead of monitoring each machine continuously.
