Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) Training Course
What you'll learn
- Evaluation of measurement systems for an improvement project’s critical-to-quality characteristic.
- How Gauge Repeatability & Reproducibility (GR&R) studies can be used to quantify the precision of a measurement system
- Deep understanding of common terminologies associated with measurement systems analysis (MSA)
- Utilize MSA and GR&R to support process improvement initiatives.
- Understand what it means for a measurement system to be capable, consistent and uniform.
- Ability to assess the performance of measurement systems using key standard metrics.
- State and explain various measurement system standards.
- State and describe statistical properties of measurement systems.
- Manage and/or eliminate variability in measurement systems.
Without adequate and sound measurement systems, knowing what the output of a process really is is hardly possible! A manufacturer might think that they are making good parts based on measurements made without knowing that the parts produced are seriously defective or out-of-tolerance because of the inappropriateness of the measuring device in that they are either inaccurate, out-of-calibration, or unstable.
In this detailed course, you will be exposed to many measurement system analysis techniques including how to conduct and analyze GR&R (Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility) Studies. You will understand what it means for a measurement system to be capable, consistent and uniform. You will be able to assess the performance of measurement systems using key standard metrics. You will be able to state the various measurement system standards.
You'll learn what must be accomplished to meet the requirements for a measurement quality system by ISO (and many other) standards. with specific emphasis on ISO 10012-1:2003. Quality assurance requirements for measuring equipment.
You will be able to evaluate a measurement system for an improvement project’s critical-to-quality characteristic. You will learn how Gauge Repeatability & Reproducibility (GR&R) studies can be used to quantify the precision of a measurement system, and gain deep understanding of many terminologies associated with measurement systems analysis (MSA) including but not restricted to precision, accuracy, bias, linearity, and stability. You will be able to apply concepts learnt in real-life in terms of seeing how project teams utilize MSA and GR&R to support process improvement initiatives. You would gain appropriate skills required for managing variabilities in measurement systems.
The course contains some core topics as follows:
Meaning of Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA).
Examples and Applications of Measurement Systems.
Characteristic Assessment of MSA.
Various Terms Used in MSA.
