MEASUREMENT SYSTEM ANALYSIS (MSA)
SPC or Measurement System Analysis(MSA) is a method used to validate the correctness of the Measurement System used in data collection statistically by studying the variability contributed to the overall system by the measurement system. Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) connects to measurement data that is used in nearly every manufacturing process. As the quality of the data improves, the quality of decisions improves.
After going through Measurement System Analysis technical training participants will understand and learn about:
- Understand the fundamental concepts of measurement system analysis.
- Learn how to assess the ability of a measurement process to discern important process or product changes.
- Understand the measurement system, its effect and impact on the quality of measurement data of the process analysis.
- Learn how to conduct Measurement System Analysis (MSA) and use the results from gauge repeatability and reproducibility for decision making.
Who Should Attend
- Senior Management
- Quality Engineers
- Manufacturing Professionals
- Process Improvement Professionals
- Process Managers
- Quality Managers
- Production Managers
- Program Managers
- Internal Auditors
Benefits of Attending
The Measurement System Analysis (MSA) technique is an important method that is used to analyze and measure the capability of a measurement system in a systematic way. This training workshop describes the complete philosophy, principles, and methods of repeatability and reproducibility in MSA and introduces MSA techniques into non-destructive testing. In this workshop participants will gain an understanding of how to validate and improve their measurement system.
Measurement System Analysis technical training workshop will offer the following benefits:
- Eliminate or reduce the calculation error due to manual calculation.
- Communicate and share the MSA results more easily with their customers.
- Greatly reduce the time needed to perform Measurement System Analysis.
- Identify the types of variations influencing the measurement system performance.
- Acquire the use of proven statistical techniques, skills and ability to assess the measurement system.
- Select the appropriate statistical methods for evaluating the measurement system in different environments.

Feedback From Past Participants
This workshop helped us to improve our knowledge of how to design, conduct, analyze and improve measurement processes for precision, stability, and consistency.
This workshop had the knowledge about approaches to deal with non-destructive, semi destructive, and destructive measurement processes.
The trainer guidance has helped us to understand how to apply measurement system analysis to Six Sigma DMAIC and DFSS projects.
