Error Proofing From A Different Angle: Definition of error proofing and some observations by W. Edwards Deming.

Finding The Balance: In error proofing "one size fits no one."  To find what fits in your organization, start with the fundamental question of "How much responsibility for error proofing should be given to the tool and how much should be operator responsibility?" This section provides more on this concept.

Six Error Proofing Scenarios: Error proofing solutions all have trade offs. You can have control or you can have flexibility. Rarely do you get both. This page looks at error proofing extremes as well as the middle ground. 

How Much Are You Investing In Errors? If your current error proofing system or approach still leaves you with errors you are investing in errors, not error proofing. Error proofing is about quality and it is also very much about dollars and common sense. This pages digs into that.
