WHAT IS MEASUREMent system analysis (MSA) training program?

A measurement systems analysis (MSA) is the thorough assessment of a measurement process, and typically includes a specially designed experiments that seek to identify the components of variation. MSA is a statistical tool to qualify a measurement system - gauge for the monitoring of process parameters or measurement of product characteristics. MSA –AIAG recommends methods applicable for automotive industry – aligned with IATF 16949 QMS requirements. The purpose of this training program is to provide participants knowledge about various tools to perform a host of msa applications within their organizations.
