About the Course:
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 the quality of measurement data and the accuracy of the process analysis.
• Interpret the types of variations influencing the measurement system 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.

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.
