BO 203 – Measurement System Analysis (MSA) and Variation Reduction – 2 days

bo203
Introduction :
The ability of measuring equipment to obtain reliable results directly influences the efficiency of quality control and data collection activities. Therefore, the ability of measuring equipment to obtain repeatable, reproducible and accurate measurements should be assessed prior to data collection in order to minimize the risk of making wrong decision that can bring disaster to company business.

This course covers the basic concepts associated with Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) and variation reduction. Topics include the assessment of repeat¬ability, reproducibility, Gage R&R, bias, linearity, stability, inspection effectiveness, standards selection and use, calibration, compensation, measurement improve¬ment and control.

Learn how to:
Use variability charts, ANOVA and Xbar and R method to quantify components of variation
Create and evaluate gage repeatability and reproducibility (gage R&R) studies
Create and evaluate a measurement systems analysis for variables and attribute data

Training Approach
This practical course combines classroom teaching, practical exercises, and group discussion with actual factory based projects to provide a complete action learning experience. The course has been designed to enable all participants leave the training room with a set of new knowledge, tools, skills and direct experience of how to use JMP software to perform measurement system analysis in a real company setting.

Prerequisite: Statistical Data Analysis Through JMP software
Training facilities: Computer installed with JMP Software and LCD projector
