Beginners in quality, auditors, and managers will learn about measurement uncertainty and sources of error in this class, which is ideal for those who need to know and practice MSA fundamentals. The course starts with describing measurement error, and methodically guides you to conduct or evaluate your own bias, linearity, and stability studies. To complete the class, you'll demonstrate how to determine gage R&R (repeatability and reproducibility) for attribute and variables data. You'll also be able to gauge the extent and the source of variation.
The class includes examples of linearity, bias, and stability studies, and tools such as an Excel spreadsheet to record and determine gage R&R for attribute and variables data. Prior to enrolling, you should have a basic knowledge of descriptive statistics (calculate measures of central tendencies), variation and control charts, and access to a calculator. You will have 180 days to assess this course.
