Course overview   

Measurement System Analysis, or MSA, is a method for gaining an understanding of the variation present in measuring systems. A high level of confidence is required for the measurement of product and process characteristics.

This course covers the MSA requirements for AS9145 – Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval Process.

AS13003

This standard defines the minimum requirements for conducting Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) for variable and attribute assessment on characteristics as defined on the drawing or specification.

Who should attend?   

This course is designed for Implementation Teams, Internal Auditors and others who are involved in the implementation or auditing of Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA). Familiarity with basic statistical concepts would be beneficial but not necessary.

Benefits and Learning Objectives   

MSA is used when an understanding of measurement system variability is required. MSA studies will decompose measurement system variability into equipment, operator and part variation.
 
It is often mandated by aerospace and other engineering primary manufacturers as a specific requirement on their suppliers to give them confidence in the measurements that are being taken and reported by the supplier. MSA will support understanding measurement system performance and allow any performance limitations to be actioned appropriately.
 
Delegates will become competent in implementing, undertaking and auditing Measurement Systems Analysis including studies for variable and attribute data.

Topics covered   

  • Overview of MSA
  • Variable and attribute data
  • Range Method
  • Average and range method
  • ANOVA method
  • Attribute agreement analysis
  • Gauge performance curves
  • Understanding and interpreting results

Certification   

Upon completion of the course you will receive an Industry Forum certificate of attendance.
