Error proofing

Share This

Any mechanism or device in a process that helps eliminate defects by preventing, correcting, or drawing attention to human error as they occur.

A simple example is demonstrated when a driver of a car equipped with a manual gearbox must press on the clutch pedal prior to starting an automobile. The interlock serves to prevent unintended movement of the car.
