Statistical Process Control and Measurement Systems Analysis (1 Days)

Training on SPC && MSA


Course Date : 25th April 2018
Cost : 3000 Just 2150 Rs /- on Net
Title : SPC and MSA / Duration: 1 Days
Statistical Process Control (SPC)

Statistical process control (SPC) is a method of quality control which uses statistical methods. SPC is applied in order to monitor and control a process. Monitoring and controlling the process ensures that it operates at its full potential. At its full potential, the process can make as much conforming product as possible with a minimum (if not an elimination) of waste (rework or scrap).

SPC can be applied to any process where the "conforming product" (product meeting specifications) output can be measured. Key tools used in SPC include control charts; a focus on continuous improvement; and the design of experiments. An example of a process where SPC is applied is manufacturing lines.

Course Objectives

The overall objective of this course is to teach you how to effectively apply SPC techniques and calculations in the MEASURE, ANALYZE, and CONTROL phases of a process improvement project.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Explain the basics of measurement
  • Construct and interpret a histogram
  • Evaluate process performance over time using a Trend Chart
  • Develop a sub-grouping strategy
  • Process Variation
  • Construct and interpret Statistical Process Control charts for variable and attribute data
  • Perform Capability Analysis

Who Should Attend

Following are the roles for whom training is suitable.

  • Management and employee team members from all aspects of the organization who participate in the activities associated with Statistical Process Control (SPC) activities, i.e. manufacturing, engineering, sales, service, quality, etc.
  • ISO/TS 16949 internal auditors or second party auditors
  • Anyone involved in product quality planning activities
  • Anyone involved in the implementation of ISO/TS 16949
  • Anyone interested in learning more about SPC

  • Setting the Stage
  • Continual Improvement and SPC
  • Shewhart Control Charts
  • Other Types of Control Charts
  • Understanding Process Capability
Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA)

A measurement systems analysis (MSA) is a specially designed experiment that seeks to identify the components of variation in the measurement.

Just as processes that produce a product may vary, the process of obtaining measurements and data may have variation and produce defects. A measurement systems analysis evaluates the test method, measuring instruments, and the entire process of obtaining measurements to ensure the integrity of data used for analysis (usually quality analysis) and to understand the implications of measurement error for decisions made about a product or process. MSA is an important element of Six Sigma methodology and of other quality management systems.

MSA analyzes the collection of equipment, operations, procedures, software and personnel that affects the assignment of a number to a measurement characteristic. A measurement systems analysis considers the following:

  • Selecting the correct measurement and approach
  • Assessing the measuring device
  • Assessing procedures and operators
  • Assessing any measurement interactions
  • Calculating the measurement uncertainty of individual measurement devices and/or measurement systems

Common tools and techniques of measurement systems analysis include: calibration studies, fixed effect ANOVA, components of variance, attribute gage study, gage R&R, ANOVA gage R&R, destructive testing analysis and others. The tool selected is usually determined by characteristics of the measurement system itself.

Course Objectives

This interactive and practical course will provide delegates with a basic knowledge of the principles of MSA and the methodologies for performance of measurement systems studies with respect to bias, linearity and stability. Our course is highly practical and avoids detailed knowledge or discussion of statistics.

Key Skills / Learning Objectives

Through the combination of interactive tutorials and workshops, our course will enable the delegates to:

  • Use MSA to determine the suitability of measurement systems.
  • Perform a Repeatability and Reproducibility (R&R) study.
  • Interpret the results in the context of the process variation and product acceptance criteria.
  • Use the data to improve the effectiveness of the measurement system.

Practical workshops are designed to reinforce the discussions and topics. This style of delivery makes the course both memorable and enjoyable for participants, ensuring long-term learning.
