Jidohka is a Japanese word which translates as autonomation, a form of automation in which machinery automatically inspects each team after producing it, ceasing production and notifying humans if a defect is detected; Toyota expands the meaning of jidohka to include the responsibility of all workers to function similarly, i.e. to check every item produced and make no more if a defect is detected, until the cause of the defect has been identified and corrected.
