Measurement System Analysis (MSA) - IMTMA/Q003

Programme Background

Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) originated with the automotive industry is eventually becoming a defacto standard of the manufacturing industry. Just as processes that produce a product may vary, the process of obtaining accurate measurements and data may also have variations and produce defects. MSA is a holistic approach to ensure the integrity of data used for analysis and evaluates the entire process of obtaining measurements i.e test methods, measuring instruments, operations, procedures, software and personnel that affect the assignment of a value to a measurement and to understand the implications of measurement error. MSA is an important element of Six Sigma methodology and other quality management systems.

Focus Areas
  • Review of basic terms - Accuracy, Precision, Bias, Measurement Uncertanity, etc.
  • Definition and purpose of MSA
  • Difference between calibration and MSA components of a measurement system
  • Study of Bias, Stability and Linearity

  • Hands on exercise of MSA on sample components
  • Relation between MSA and SPC methods
  • Gauge performance for attribute measurements
  • Measurement study preparation
  • Acceptance criteria
  • Case studies and examples of MSA for specific components
  • Exercises for calculations of R&R and plotting SPC charts
