Why Measurement Systems Analysis?

Everyday our lives are being impacted by more and more data. We have become a data driven society. In business and industry we are using data in more ways than ever before.  Today manufacturing companies gather massive amounts of information through measurement and inspection. When this measurement data is being used to make decisions regarding the process and the business in general it is vital that the data is accurate. If there are errors in our measurement system we will be making decisions based on incorrect data. We could be making incorrect decisions or producing non-conforming parts. A properly planned and executed Measurement System Analysis (MSA) can help build a strong foundation for any data based decision making process.

MSA is defined as an experimental and mathematical method of determining the amount of variation that exists within a measurement process. Variation in the measurement process can directly contribute to our overall process variability. MSA is used to certify the measurement system for use by evaluating the system’s accuracy, precision and stability.

Benefits of Measurement Systems Analysis Training:

1. It evaluates the reliability of the measurement system in statistical and scientific way.

2. Since a scientific approach is used to evaluate the measurement system, it is possible to implement this methodology to assess the correctness of the measurement system.

3. The method is not only applicable continuous data but also to discrete data type.

4. By achieving a low percentage of error it is possible to prove that any claim that is made on the analysis of the existing system is also scientifically reliable and not dependent on any subjective measuring error or bias.

5. By analyzing the existing system in an unbiased and low erroneous way, it is then possible to compare the existing system with its’ future state in a reliable way.
