Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA)/Gage R&R Online Course

If you are interested in Six Sigma you will be interested in this course. Achieving the ‘Six Sigma Black Belt’ requires a thorough knowledge of statistics.
MiC Quality online courses will provide you with a good basis for development of this knowledge.

Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) is one of the core components of the Six Sigma approach. Many problems encountered with Statistical Process Control (SPC) and Design of Experiments (DOE) are caused by problems with measurement systems. I commend this course to anybody who is concerned with process improvement with Six Sigma

Measurement Systems Analysis (Gage R&R Studies) is also a core component of the QS9000/ TS16949 Automotive Quality System Requirements. The standard is supported by manuals published by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG). The MSA standard is described in the Third Edition of the Measurement Systems Analysis Manual published in March 2002.

In this course you will gain a thorough understanding of how to validate and improve your measurement system. The course includes a number of interactive simulations (click on the caliper to try an example). These allow you to put the concepts you learn into practice so that you will be confident and comfortable when you apply them in your workplace.

:: What Students Said about the Course

Charles Kluge, Engineer, Master Black Belt Candidate: "Great overview of Measurement Systems Analysis methodology and calculations. Very good price compared to other available courses. Thanks for a great course!"

David Phillips, Engineer, ASQ CQE and CSSBB: "After completing the Measurement Systems Analysis course I have a better understanding of linearity and bias (and how to use those results). I have performed attribute MSA before, but now I know WHY it works which will help me "sell" it to others."

Tim Scullard, Engineer, Lawrence Semiconductor Research Laboratory -"I am satisfied with the course and delivery. I have conducted a number R and R gage studies, and this was a good refresher with some new concepts and methods sprinkled in."

Bruce Langford, Quality Manager, Olex Cables - "The course suits managers and supervisors who are dealing with measurement because it is interactive and clear. It gives much more value than 1 or 2 day seminar. One of the greatest features of the course is the ability to interface with Glen on matters of difficulty and practical application of the course material."

:: Objectives
After completing the course you will be able to:

  • carry out a Gage R&R Study using the methods from the AIAG MSA Reference Manual
  • analyze measurement systems concerned with the measurement of variables and attributes
  • evaluate the effect of measurement errors on the effectiveness of inspection and process improvement
  • diagnose problems with measurement systems, and identify opportunities for improvement
