MSA Training Program

Measurement System Analysis (MSA)

ON SITEOFF SITEONLINE

COURSE DESCRIPTION

MSA (Measurement System Analysis) Process is a structured method that defines and establishes steps necessary to ensure products meet requirements and customer expectations. MSA is one of 17 required deliverables within the APQP process. MSA and GR&R is required for all special and key characteristics.
This training program is intended to provide an introduction and foundation of measurement system analysis for anyone who is interested in implementing the methodology. The course comprehends the industry best practices and organizes them into a disciplined and logical 5 Step MSA Process.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

This training program is intended to provide an introduction and foundation of the Measurement System Analysis (MSA) process. Mastering the content will improve product safety, quality, reliability, dependability, and launch effectiveness. At the end of this course you should be able to:

⦁ List the 5 steps in the MSA process (ReliaTrain MSA Process Map)
⦁ Define the scope of MSA
⦁ Define inputs into a measurement strategy and planning activity
⦁ Define Measurement source selection and development requirements
⦁ Define the difference between Measurement Uncertainty and MSA
⦁ Define the General Practice of Assessing Measurement Systems
⦁ Define the inputs for selecting and developing test procedures
⦁ Define the preparation outputs necessary to perform measurement system study
⦁ Define MSA acceptance criteria
⦁ Define variable measurement system analysis guidelines
⦁ Define the range method
⦁ Define Gage repeatability and reproducibility (GR&R)
⦁ Define the average and range method
⦁ Define attribute measurement system analysis guidelines
⦁ Define methods for evaluating special types of measurement systems
⦁ Define the process for dealing with non-replicable measurement systems- not being able to measure the same part multiple times
⦁ Define stability and variability studies for special measurement conditions
⦁ Define when part variation is excessive
⦁ Define average and range method for additional treatments
⦁ Define a gage performance curve
⦁ Defined pooled standard deviation approach

COURSE OUTLINE

The benefits of MSA include directing resources into early identification of required changes, avoidance of late changes, and developing and delivering a quality product on time, at the lowest cost. Understanding and implementation of MSA reinforces an organizations ability to meet ISO-9001:2015 and IATF-16949:2016 requirements.

This course will cover the 5 defined steps to completing the MSA process:

⦁ Step One: General Measurement System Guidelines
⦁ Step Two: General Practice for Assessing Measurement Systems
⦁ Step Three: Recommended Practices for Simple Measurement Systems
⦁ Step Four: Practices for Complex Measurement Systems
⦁ Step Five: Other Measurement Concepts

Step One: General Measurement System Guidelines

⦁ Define the Scope
⦁ Define the Tools to address the Scope
⦁ Define the Team
⦁ Develop the Quality Plan
⦁ Train the Team

Step Two: General Practice for Assessing Measurement Systems

⦁ Define the Voice of the Customer (VOC)
⦁ Collect Product and Process Benchmarking
⦁ Define Product and Process Assumptions
⦁ Define Requirements
⦁ Define Preliminary Bill-of-Materials and Design Goals
⦁ Define Preliminary Process Flow Diagram (PFD)
⦁ Define Preliminary List of Special Characteristics

Step Three: Recommended Practices for Simple Measurement Systems

⦁ Define inputs from Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA)
⦁ Define inputs from Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFM/A)
⦁ Define inputs from Design Reviews
⦁ Define how Equipment, Tooling, and Facilities Requirements are APQP outputs
⦁ Define how Design Validation Plan (DVP) is linked with APQP

Step Four: Practices for Complex Measurement Systems

⦁ Define inputs from the Process Flow Diagram (PFD)
⦁ Define the inputs from Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (PFMEA)
⦁ Define APQP inputs into the Pre-Launch Process Control Plan (PCP)
⦁ Define APQP inputs into the Characteristics Matrix
⦁ Define APQP inputs into the initial Standardized Work Instructions (SWI)
⦁ Define APQP inputs into the Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) Plan
⦁ Define the linkage of APQP and Quality Management Systems (QMS)

Step Five: Other Measurement Concepts

⦁ APQP outputs linked with Production Trial Run (PTR)
⦁ APQP outputs linked with Run@Rate
⦁ APQP outputs linked with MSA
⦁ APQP outputs linked with Preliminary Capability Study
⦁ APQP outputs linked with Product Control Plans
⦁ APQP outputs linked with Standardized Work Instructions
⦁ APQP outputs linked with Packaging Evaluation
⦁ APQP linked with Quality Management Systems Review and Sign-Off

At the end of the training the participant will be required to take quizzes that test proficiency, and complete a course survey based on the course material and the instructor. ReliaTrain uses the results of the quizzes and surveys to update the training to provide the best experience to participants.
