1. This two-day training is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the importance of MSA
in controlling and improving the production process and to give a practical knowledge of using statistical
methods in analyzing the measurement system.
2. To define and understand a measurement system and the causes of variation therein; to be able to qualify
the sources of variation.
3. To be able to analyze this data to improve the measurement system, design or choose appropriate systems
for measurement, data collection and use.
4. To maintain these measurement systems over the life of the manufacturing process they are used with
Includes Non-Replicable MSA.
