Measurement Systems Analysis
Scientific and business decisions are questionable if they are based on data obtained using a measurement system that has not been well-studied, improved, and standardized. For this reason, measurement-system study is a requirement in programs such as Six Sigma and ISO 9000. In this seminar we will take you through, and then beyond, basic gage repeatability and reproducibility studies using many real examples and classroom exercises. We will use MINITAB®, a popular software package for statistical analysis, to perform standard measurement-system analyses. We will then go beyond these standard analyses to gain more insight for improving your measurement system.
You are encouraged to bring your own measurement-system data in a computer-readable format for inclusion in the course. 1.4 CEUs.
