Error proofing is used to ensure products and processes are completed correctly the first time. The goal of error proofing is to prevent the occurrence of defects and to ensure that mistakes are detected when they occur. Because people can make mistakes even in inspection, error proofing often relies on mechanisms built into tools or systems that automatically signal when problems occur or prevent the process from continuing until the proper conditions are met.
