The purpose of this course is to provide the participant with the tools to perform various MSA applications within their organizations. The course is presented in several, self-contained modules to effectively drive the principles of MSA while enabling the participant to immediately tie the principles to their applications. The course allows for the organization to use their data, through application exercises to incorporate the concepts into actual outcomes. The course will present the methods necessary to analyze outcome data and to make decisions and recommendations based on the data.
Note: As this course is intended to be offered on-site, it is essential that any desired work-oriented data for review and analysis be provided to the trainer a week prior to the scheduled class
Length: 1 day Prerequisites: None
Module 1: Introduction to Principles of MSA (4 hours)
This module will provide for an overview of the concepts of MSA. Discussions will relate to the development of MSA Studies and the MSA Plan. Applications exercises will be provided to enhance the understanding of these general concepts.
- Determine the data necessary to implement an MSA Study/li>
- Define the elements of an MSA Plan
- Identify and select the tools necessary for conducting various MSA studies.
- Work Projects and Activities based on MSA principles
Module 2: Using Minitab and Excel for MSA (4 hours)
This module will provide the technician and lab personnel with a working knowledge of MINITAB and Excel and its specific tools. The application exercises will allow the participants to determine which tool is appropriate and to be able to make decisions based on their output.
- Utilize the following tools
- Basic Statistical Tests
- Regression and Anova
- Measurement Systems Analysis
- Control Charts
- Capability Analysis
- Work-Based Applications
Module 3: Gage R & R (Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility) (4 Hours)
This module will be a review of the principles for conducting a gage analysis study. It will review both the destructive and non-destructive variety of R&Rs. It will provide an overview for the calculation and analysis of acceptability of the gages being used for the defined studies.
- Determine format for conducting a Gage R & R
- Calculate the respective outcomes for Gage R & R
- Interpret the results and draw conclusions
- Make valid decisions based on the statistical results.
- Apply Work-Based Application of Gage R&R
Module 4: ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) (4 hours)
This work module is an in-depth overview of the principles of analysis of variance. It will review the techniques for sub-dividing the total variation of a set of data into meaningful component parts associated with specific sources of variation for the purpose of testing some hypothesis on the parameters of the model or for estimating variance components.
- Determine when ANOVA should be applied
- Interpret the results of an ANOVA and draw conclusions
- Determine F-critical values for One-Way and Two-Way nested designs
- Make valid decisions based on results
- Apply Work-Based Applications of ANOVA
Module 5: Attribute Gage R & R (Optional) (6 Hours)
This module will be an in-depth studies of: Graphical Analysis of range charts, mean charts, run charts, and interaction charts. It will define attribute agreement analysis, Cohen’s Kappa, Kendall’s coefficient, with MINITAB and Excel. It will discuss analytical methods for attribute studies.
- Identify acceptance criteria
- Select the appropriate instruments
- Develop test methods and the criteria for passing or failing.
- Develop test methods for performing identified tests
- Confirm if the GR&R is close to 100%
- Define the necessary documentation
- Develop piloting techniques for running new tests and criteria for performing periodic GR&R’s
Learning is maximized through participation. That is why Plexus training avoids lecture-based teaching and focuses on group activities, case studies and hands-on applications. Learn by doing.
