Measurement System Assessment

Measurement System Assessment 2018-10-04T13:14:48+00:00

Organization frequency overlooks the impact of not having quality measurement systems. Good parts are wrongly rejected and bad parts are mistakenly accepted, or a satisfactory process appears unsatisfactory. This can lead to lost sales and profits and unnecessary expense while trying to fix a manufacturing or business process where the primary source of variability is from the measurement system. A capable measurement system will bring about an effective and efficient implementation of any process control program and improvement initiative as the actual variables of interest now lies directly with the processes itself.

This course will enable the participants to:
• Understand the fundamental principle of measurement system and its effect and impact on the quality of measurement data and the accuracy of the process analysis
• Know types of variations influencing the measurement system performance
• Acquire the use of proven statistical techniques, skills and ability to assess the measurement system
• Select the appropriate statistical methods for evaluating the measurement system in different environments
