To measure is to know, at least …if the measurement is correct! Decisions on accepting or rejecting parts are based on results of measurements but like all processes, the measurement process has an inherent variation. The objective of MSA is to determine how big the measurement uncertainty is, to find out what the sources of variation are and to see how we can reduce the measurement variation.
Do not underestimate the importance of this, because the wider the uncertainty area, the bigger the chance of making a wrong decision about the product.
The QS Consult training on MSA shows you the principles of measurement errors and gives you tools to accurately determining them and to interpret them correctly. Our course is based on the MSA-handbook of AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) - fourth edition – June 2010 but it has been adapted to make it more practical and applicable.
