About the Course:
A capable measurement system will bring about an effective and efficient implementation of any process control program and improvement initiatives. The methodology adopted for MSA is referenced to AIAG-MSA and AS13003.

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
• Identify the types of variations influencing the measurement system performance
• Acquire the use of statistical techniques, skills and ability to assess the measurement system
• Select the appropriate statistical methods for evaluating the measurement system in different environments

Who Should Attend?
This course is particularly suitable for and benefit to Engineers, Supervisors, Process Specialists or any personnel involve in quality assurance, process control and improvement activities.
