Course overview

Measurement System Analysis, or MSA, is a method for gaining an understanding of the variation present in measuring systems. It is now widely used in many industrial sectors such as automotive, aerospace, renewable energy and mobile power generation, when a high level of confidence is required for the measurement of product characteristics.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for Management Representatives, Implementation Teams, Internal Auditors and others who are involved in the auditing or implementation 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 automotive, 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 reported.

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
