Measurement System Analysis (MSA)

(by Mr. Nazari Haron )


Participants will be able to:
-  Define and understand a measurement system.
-  Explain various sources of measurement system uncertainty.
-  Design or choose appropriate systems for measurement, data
   collection and use
-  Conduct measurement system studies including assessment of
   linearity, stability, repeatability, and reproducibility.
-  Understand and implement a gage management and calibration system.

program content

              - Types of evaluations of measurement uncertainty
     -  The effects of too much variation in measurements

4.  Procedures for Assessing Measuring Systems (measured data)
     -  Determining stability, bias, repeatability,
         reproducibility, linearity
     -  Analysis of variance
     -  Graphical techniques

5.  Measurement System Linearity Stability

     -  R&R analysis for non-destructive measurements
     -  Use of ANOVA for GR&Rs
     -  R&R analysis for destructive measurements
     -  R&R analysis for attribute measurements

7.  Procedures for Assessing Measuring Systems (attribute data)
     -  How to handle attribute data studies short methods
     - Long method
     - Special requirements
     - Implications for the ongoing application of tests

8.  Improving Measurement Systems
     -  Using a problem-solving approach to find the root causes
         of repeatability and reproducibility problems.
     -  Using the GR&R data to help direct the problem-solving effort
     -  Ongoing application of MSA
     -  Ongoing monitoring of personnel involved with testing


The course is highly interactive; participants will be guided through the various steps of the course and will be involved in extensive exercising and few numbers of examples and case studies. The course incorporates:
    -  Lecture
    -  Sample formats and examples
    -  Individual exercises
    -  Group discussion and presentation.

who must attend

Quality Managers, Quality Systems and Lab Technicians, or those responsible for planning, using and maintaining measurement systems; engineers; those responsible for process improvements.

Note: Participants must have basic understanding of computational math, partial
          understanding of elementary applied statistics and basic background in
          statistical process control is important.
All participants much bring along their personal SCIENTIFIC calculator.
