Measurement System Analysis or « MSA » is a method  that evaluates and improves the reliability of your measurements. Measurement variations can lead to rejecting a compliant product or worse, releasing and sending a non-compliant product to the customer.

MSA is the study of the measurement system as a whole. It studies the different sources of variation related to the measuring instrument, the operator or the measurement method used.

Thus, the MSA is an essential prerequisite for process control. It is the second step of the DMAICs concept (M=Measures) which governs the implementation method of major improvement projects such as LEAN, SIX SIGMA or SPC (Statistical Process Control) …


EURO-SYMBIOSE offers you an MSA training specially adapted to the AERO sector in accordance with the AS13003 standard.
