A Detailed Look at Changes to the MSA Manual

Michael Down writes that the MSA and SPC manuals should be seen as partner reference guides that support the implementation and use of QS-9000 and are utilized by the automotive sector to evaluate and approve measurement systems and implement SPC in plants. The MSA has recently gone through a major rewrite and was released in April 2002 as a third edition. Down walks you through the key changes in the third edition of the MSA and examines issues that sometimes cause confusion among those using the MSA and SPC manuals.
