Just as a manufacturing process may have variations and defects, the process of measuring and obtaining data may also have variation. Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) seeks to identify the defects in your measurement system.

Many people who have never learned about MSA assume the measurement system is fine as long as it is in calibration. It is true that calibration is essential, but even a calibrated measurement system can provide false readings if the measurement variation is excessive.

MSA analyzes the equipment, operations, software, personnel and procedures that are in place. MSA considers the following:

  • selecting the correct measurement and approach
  • assessing the measuring device
  • assessing procedures and operators
  • assessing any measurement interaction there may be
  • calculating the measurement uncertainty of individual measurement devices and/or measurement systems

By using the simple but powerful principles taught in our online training course, you will be able to determine measurement variation for your processes.
