# Measurement System Analysis (MSA)

Course ID MSAASQ
Format Web-based

To improve a business process, the process must be measureable, and key to that measurement is a reliable and accurate measurement system―the complete process used to obtain measurements including instruments, gauges, standards, procedures, personnel, environment, and assumptions used to quantify a measurement. To help you determine if your process measurement system is reliable and accurate, use Measurement System Analysis (MSA), a study that evaluates a measurement system for an improvement project’s critical-to-quality characteristic, and Gauge Repeatability & Reproducibility (GR&R) studies, used to quantify the precision of a measurement system.

Learn about Measurement System Analysis (MSA), a study that evaluates a measurement system for an improvement project’s critical-to-quality characteristic, and Gauge Repeatability & Reproducibility (GR&R) studies, used to quantify the precision of a measurement system. Gain an understanding of common MSA terms like precision, accuracy, bias, linearity, and stability and the specific steps to take to complete a GR&R study. Review practical, real-life scenarios to see how project teams use MSA and GR&R to support process improvement initiatives.

### WebEx – Virtual Course: Advance Preparation and Student Information

#### Join a Test Session

We strongly suggest that you join a WebEx test session in advance of your scheduled virtual training, using your preferred web browser. This can help prevent problems launching content the day your training begins.

If you do not have administrative privileges on the SAME computer you will be using the day of your training (i.e., your workstation within your organization) you may need the assistance of your local IT/IS help desk staff for the platform to engage correctly.

To join a test session (meeting), click here and enter your name and email address to join. If successful, you will see a screen that says "Congratulations! Your system is now set up properly ..."

### Deactivate Pop-up Blockers

You should deactivate any pop-up blockers, spam filters, and company firewalls that could prevent the WebEx client platform or web-based course from working properly. Third-party toolbars such as Bing, Yahoo, and Google should also be disabled due to their own pop-up blocking capabilities.
