MEASUREMENT SYSTEM ANALYSIS ( MSA )

One Day Work Shop Presented By CTRI (CT Research Institute)

Research and Training wing of Western Thomson Group

COURSE OBJECTIVE

Measurement System Analysis (MSA) is a structured method to understand the measurement uncertainties using various statistical methods. Through this method, measurement variations are measured and quantified such that they can be compared with specifications & standards and actions can be initiated to reduce the measurement variation.

In this work shop, MSA concepts are explained step by step through examples and work practices. This workshop would help the participants to understand the MSA concepts clearly and use them in their work place and thus improve their measurement systems.
