Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA)

Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) is a critical technique used in research and product development, quality management, and process improvement that allows you to evaluate the ability of a measurement system to provide useful measurement data. 

In this two-part webinar series we will be joined by Christian Neu from Procter and Gamble, who will present how P&G was able to leverage MSA in their process development to enhance process performance and thereby reduce cost and time to market.

In part one, we will introduce the concept of MSA and provide insights into the steps involved, including designing the study, gathering and analyzing data, and interpreting results.

In part two, we will analyze the design and execution of a gauge validation study. The study design involves using power and sample size to determine how many times two known reference samples need to be measured in order to show the expected difference. Additional discussion on how to deploy the validated gauge will follow.

Key Learning Points:

Part 1: 

  • P&G case study MSA
  • Introduction to MSA
  • Designing an MSA study
  • Gathering and analyzing MSA data

Part 2 :

  • P&G case study MSA validation 
  • Leveraging the power of samples size calculators to design a validation study
  • Analyzing results
  • Gauge Deployment: Process Monitor case

If you are a research and development scientist, quality manager, process engineer, or data analyst, this webinar is for you. You will leave with a clear understanding of the significance of MSA in ensuring the accuracy and reliability of measurement systems, as well as how to apply this technique to your own work.
