By the end of this interactive course and workshop participants will understand the nature and types of variation present in shop-floor gauges and be able to conduct MSA (measurement system analysis) studies on variable & attribute gauges and visual inspection (i.e. gauge R&R studies).
This course is fully aligned with the requirements of AS13003
Assessment of learning is achieved through structured exercises and ‘hands-on’ workshops in which participants plan and undertake MSA studies.The tutors provide facilitation, feedback and advisement to ensure that AS13003 requirements and best practice is fully understood and used.
All participants attending the ‘public courses’ are requested to bring along 10 (ten) components, the relevant inspection gauge, and the specification of at least one characteristic (i.e. the nominal and upper/lower tolerances). This will ensure that all participants will have successfully undertaken at least one GR&R study during the course, and will be able to demonstrate competency. TEC use and recommend Minitab(R) statistical software.
The 2-day course is highly interactive and uses a Case Studies, group exercises and ‘hands-on’ MSA workshops. The course timings are -
The course is delivered over 2 consecutive days by an experienced MSA Practitioner with continual assessment and feedback provided by the tutor.
Course topics include –
Concepts of measurement system variation
Measurement system variation
Minimum requirements for MSA
Measurement system study preparations
Guidelines for the variable measurement system study
Conducting the MSA study
Analysis of results – types of error
Interpreting the results – graphically
Guidelines for the attribute measurement system study
MSA is an ongoing activity
TEC's tutors are all experienced MSA Practitioners with many years’ experience conducting MSA studies the automotive, aerospace and defence sectors.
The ‘hands-on’ MSA workshops may use sample parts supplied by TEC Transnational or their own components.
In-company courses may be organised at any time and are extremely cost-effective on a ‘cost-per-student’ basis. The host company is responsible for the venue costs.
We can accommodate up to 10 (maximum) delegates per session.Details/quote
Individuals needing to demonstrate competency as MSA practitioners, with responsibility for deployment of AS13003 and respective compliance.
Individuals wishing to participate in MSA (GR&R) studies.
Quality professionals who design and document inspection and test processes - with particular relevance to AS9145 (APQP & PPAP).
Other individuals who have found this course useful are six sigma practitioners, team leaders and supervisors in aerospace/defence organizations, who are looking to broaden their awareness of quality tools in order to understand how they can improve overall business effectiveness.
Individual who successfully complete the course will -
Because students are encouraged to bring along 10 (ten) components, the relevant inspection gauge, and the specification of at least one characteristic (i.e. the nominal and upper/lower tolerances) their competency will be demonstrated during course, and they will return to their organizations with at least one GR&R study successfully completed and documented.
All students successfully completing the 2-day course will receive an individual training certificate containing the TEC Transnational logo
