Organization always overlooks the impact of not having capable measurement systems. Good parts are wrongly rejected, and bad parts are mistakenly accepted, or a satisfactory process appears unsatisfactory.
A capable measurement system will enhance the effectiveness and efficiency in implementing any process control program and improvement initiatives because 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 thequality of measurement data and the accuracy of the process analysis.
• Interpret the types of variations influencing the measurementsystem performance.
• Conduct Variable and Attribute Measurement System Studies.
• Acquire the use of statistical techniques to evaluate the measurement system in terms of GR&R % and ndc (Number of Distinct Categories).
• Appreciate the use of available software to compute the result of Measurement System Studies.
