Measurement System Analysis MSA

Measurement System Analysis MSA

Duration (Days)



This course is designed to help participants assess, monitor and reduce measurement system variateion. The system consis of five major characteristics of variation : bias, stability, linearity, repeatability and reproducibility. Through the program participation will be able to learn how to detect meaningful differences in process variables.

  • Apply measurement system analysis to prevent special and common causes of variation in processes.

  • Understand the basic rules of measurement system analysis and use for various process parameters.

  • Perform GR&R analysis study.
