> quality>Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA)


This course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the principles of MSA and the methodologies for performing measurement systems studies. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to perform an R&R study and be able to interpret the results in the context of the process variation and product acceptance criteria.

MSA is one of the core tools of IATF 16949:2016, where it is required to be used within the Product Realisation process and is also a key element of Measure step Six Sigma to establish the reliability of the process measurement system.

Duration: 1 Day, 09:00 – 16:00
