How Amazing your Brain is? / 你的大脑有多神奇?

Play a game first:

Initially, you will have difficulty understanding the below as your brain is considering each word individually.

先玩个小游戏:

一开始,你会很难理解下面的内容,因为你的大脑正在逐个思考每一个单词。






However, as you read on, your brain will begin to interpret the words correctly to form a complete sentence.

但是,当你读下去,你的大脑将开始能正确地解读这些单词,并将形成一段完整的句子。










This is a good example to demonstrate how powerful a human brain is when it comes to message interpretation.


Poka-yoke to Eliminate Human Errors


Human errors are common in our daily life, e.g. misunderstanding, forgetfulness, inadvertence, etc. Poka-yoke (mistake-proofing) is a LEAN tool for defect elimination by preventing, correcting or drawing attention to human errors as they occur. Through poka-yoke, one can complete the process intuitively without experiences, knowledge nor paying additional attentions.

When applying poka-yoke, we may leverage the interpretation power of our brain. For example, to indicate the corresponding lighting area controlled by each switch, we have applied color and number on the switch and the floor plan. The brain will then understand automatically that switch 1 controls the lights of red area 1, green switch 2 controls the lights of green area 2, etc.

这是一个很好的例子,说明人类的大脑在信息解读方面是多么的强大。


Poka-yoke 防错法


人为错误(例如误解、健忘和疏忽等)常出现在我们日常生活中。Poka-yoke(防错法)是一种精益工具,可以防止、纠正或令人注意到可能发生的人为错误,从而消除缺陷。透过Poka-yoke,人们可以单凭直觉来完成工作,无需依靠经验、知识及额外的注意力。


应用Poka-yoke时,我们可以利用大脑的解读能力。例如:为了分辨不同开关对应的照明区域,我们会在开关和平面图上标明颜色和数字。人类的大脑会自动解读为红色开关1控制红色区域1的灯,绿色开关2控制绿色区域2的灯等。
