The effective use of data to drive decision-making requires adequate measurement systems. When interpreting data or the results of data analysis, we assume that data or results represent the process. However, excessive measurement error may result in inappropriate conclusions. Thus, it is critical to properly assess whether measurement systems are adequate for their intended use prior to their use. Only capable measurement systems should be utilized to support quantitative methods such as statistical process control, inspection activities, process capability assessment, hypothesis testing, data modeling, etc.

Measurement systems must be properly assessed to minimize risk and comply with customer and regulatory requirements. While most companies perform some aspects of measurement systems assessment (MSA), such as Gage Repeatability & Reproducibility Studies, we often observe inadequate assessments of measurement systems.

This webinar will identify the ten improvements that most companies can make to their measurement systems assessments. Steven will help you develop a solid understanding of the types of measurement systems assessments that may be conducted.
