          COURSE OVERVIEW

          Learn the Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) Core Tool, and concise, efficient methods for planning and preparing an MSA

          The Automotive Quality Core Tools are the building blocks of an effective quality management system. They include Advanced Product Quality Planning & Control Plan (APQP), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Measurement System Analysis (MSA), and Statistical Process Control (SPC).

          Not every organization is aware of the importance of understanding and quantifying the variation in measurement systems. Without a good measurement system, there is no real way of knowing what the output of a process really is! We may think that we are producing good parts based on measurements made only to find out that the parts are seriously defective or out-of-tolerance because the measuring device used is inaccurate, out-of-calibration, or not stable.

          Many problems encountered with Statistical Process Control (SPC) and Design of Experiments (DOE) are caused by problems with measurement systems where the process of obtaining measurements and data may have variation and produce defects. Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) evaluates the test method, measuring instruments, and the entire process of obtaining measurements to ensure the integrity of data used for analysis and to understand the implications of measurement error for decisions made about a product or process.

          GR&R Studies are the most widely accepted techniques for evaluating the level of variation in a measurement system and determining if the evaluated measurement system is acceptable for use. And, once a measurement system is found acceptable, it is equally important to institute a formal system to manage the measurement system to ensure that it continues to be reliable and dependable.

          MSA (Measurement Systems Analysis) includes many measurement system analysis techniques including how to conduct and analyze GR&R (Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility) Studies. A GR&R is the accepted technique for evaluating the level of variation in a measurement system and determining if the measurement system is acceptable for use.

          Measurement System Analysis covers techniques for analyzing the variation within a measurement system, determining its suitability for use, and ways to improve measurement systems. The GR&R analysis techniques used in the MSA training program are in compliance with IAFT 16949/AIAG methods.

          Once a measurement system is found to be acceptable, it is equally important to institute a formal system to manage the measurement system to ensure that it continues to be reliable and dependable. MSA explores approaches to managing measurement systems to ensure that they can be depended upon.

          Study concise, efficient methods for planning and preparing a MSA, and understand process variation and its impact. Gain insight into organizational applications, categories of measurement system variation, and gage repeatability and reproducibility.

          As well as being one of the core components of the Six Sigma approach, Measurement Systems Analysis(MSA) is also a key element of IATF 16949, where it is required to be used within the Product Realisation process requiring suppliers to conduct MSA.

          This Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) course will provide you with practical knowledge and tools to perform various MSA applications within your organization. The course will provide delegates with a basic knowledge of the principles of MSA and the methodologies for performance of measurement systems studies with respect to bias, linearity and stability. Our course is highly practical.

          *This course can be tailored to your requirements and delivered ‘in-house’ at your premises or in one of our well equipped training venues.

          • Third-party auditors
          • Anyone who wants a better understanding of MSA

          PREREQUISITES

          Those attending this course are expected to have knowledge of the following:

          • Basic Statistical Knowledge
          • Experience with basic measuring concepts and an understanding of sources of variation in measurement systems such as what is covered in Gage Training or the equivalent

          LEARNING OUTCOMES

          At the successful completion of this course attendees will be able to:

          • Demonstrate an understanding of the linkage between SPC and the measurement studies with ISO/TS 16949 requirements and the AIAG FMEA and PPAP manuals
          • Apply activities that incorporate the use of the AIAG FMEA and PPAP manuals
          • Develop SPC tools based on defining customer requirements and acceptance of criteria
          • Apply methods for implementing the principles of SPC to manufacturing processes
          • Apply software to the calculation of Control Limits and incorporation of measurement studies process to the selected Process Controls
          • Demystify SPC by learning to carry out all calculations and interpretations following the steps in the SPC reference manual
