Modified one way sign indicating Continuous ImprovementSo you think your company has a good measurement system because you calibrate equipment, but it may not be enough. An upcoming course offered by Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC) will review the components of a measurement system and how it can be improved. A measurement systems analysis (MSA) is a specially designed experiment to find components of variation in a measurement. At the Measurement System Analysis training on September 13, 2016 in St Marys, PA, participants will learn:

  • the components of measurement systems
  • the different types of measurement error
  • how to design and run a variable Gage R&R and an attribute Gage R&R
  • how to interpret the output
  • how to use that information to improve your measurement system.

During the course, participants will apply the concepts reviewed on various measurement systems and use their results to improve those systems. At least one attendee from each company should have a laptop with the trial version of Minitab installed.

Instructor for the course is Sara Goncus, Director of Training and Development, Operations Strategy Consulting. Sara holds a B.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA), is a certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, and an RABQSA certified QMS internal auditor and a certified AIAG ISO/TS 16949 auditor. Prior to joining Operations Strategy, Sara worked as a Quality Assurance Engineer for Lockheed Martin at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico.
