  • Understand the concepts underlying the MSA study and the normative environment
  • Learn how to implement MSA methods
  • Understand MSA terms (EV, AV, GRR, TV and PV)
  • Learn how to interpret and meet MSA requirements (GRR<30%, ncd>5)
  • Understand how MSA works in relation to production needs

Technicians, metrology managers, quality managers who have to deal with MSA requirements.

  • Basic maths skills
  • Basic Excel skills
  • Be subject to MSA requirements or be aware of said requirements

By the end of the course, the participant will have a sound understanding of MSA principles and requirements. They will be able to set up tests that conform to the recommendations and provide a rationale for the results in relation to the requirements listed in the booklet.
