This course is designed to provide participants with a thorough introduction to Measurement System Analysis (MSA).
The MSA method is used to understand the error associated with measurement systems and their impact on making correct decisions. The knowledge gained in this course can be used to setup or audit a MSA program or instrument laboratory.
This is a beginner class that provides basic, easy-to-understand technical information that you need to address ISO/TS 16949, laboratory and quality system standard requirements.
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Explain measurement concepts and fundamental analysis
- Analyze variation error in measurement results
- Perform Bias, Linearity and Stability studies
- Perform GR&R studies
- Apply techniques to attribute and variables data
1. Introduction – overview and learning objectives
2. Description of measurement error – terms and definitions
3. Step-by-step guide – conduct or evaluate your own Bias, Linearity and Stability Studies
4. Gauging R & R – how to determine your repeatability and reproducibility
5. Gauging variation – both the extent and source of the variation
6. Examples provided- Linearity, Bias & Stability studies, illustrations, diagrams, interactive exercises and reference material.
7. Knowledge competency Quiz
Time Frame: Up to 7 hours
