measurement system analysis

Measurement system evaluation

This course teaches you how to design, perform and analyze a Measurement System Evaluation.

Reliable measurements are necessary to make good decisions. This course is 1-day training where we combine theory with practical exercises. 

You learn how to create a Process map of the Measurement method to better understand the method. The Process map includes variables that contribute to variation. These variables are possible root causes of Measurement Systems that are not capabel.

We use a Galton board to understand basic statistics and the concept of normal and special variation. You learn to create Control Charts to decide normal variation. Control charts are used to assess characteristics of your Measurement System.

We discuss applications that are relevant to you. 

You need excel for the exercises and will get an excel file you can use to create Control Charts and perform Measurement System Evaluations.


You learn to:

  • Create a process map of your Measurement system
  • Identify variables that contribute to variation
  • Design measurement system evaluations based on hypotheses
  • Collect data based on design
  • Assess the following characteristics of your measurement system:
    • precision and accuracy
    • repeatability and reproducibility
    • stability, bias and linearity
    • sensitivity (resolution)
    • capability - ability to detect differences in the medium being measured

Exercises:

Galton board

 

Galton board is used during the training for basic understanding of statistics, and practical exercises.

Applications:

  • Determine how much of the total variation is due to the measurement system
  • Compare internal inspection standards with customer standards
  • Highlight areas where calibration training is needed
  • Evaluate training of how analyzes are performed
  • Compare existing measuring equipment
  • Qualify new measuring equipment
  • Compare measurements between operators and instruments
  • Compare measurement methods
  • Provide criteria for new measurement systems
  • Identify abnormal measurements
  • Evaluate a measuring instrument before and after repair

Practical information

The course is arranged on request from companies with 6-15 participants. Courses can be tailored to your business needs, and your own data can be used in examples and assignments. 

Open courses are arranged according to the course calendar. 

Online course & online course with coaching can be started whenever you want. 

Lunch, refreshments and drinks during classroom training are included, and you receive a course certificate upon completion.

Location

Classroom training is organized at the locations Lean Tech disposes at Lillestrøm (Svelleveien 33). Good access to parking spaces. It's 2 km from Lillestrøm train station.

Lean Tech has an agreement with Thon hotels and can set up courses elsewhere if needed. It is also possible to arrange business courses at the Company's location.

Instructor

Instructor Sissel Pedersen Lundeby is IASSC (International association for Six Sigma certification) accredited trainer associate (only-one in Norway per August 2019):

"This accreditation publically reflects that you have met the standards established by IASSC such that those who participate in a training program led by you can expect to receive an acceptable level of knowledge transfer consistent with the Lean Six Sigma belt Bodies of Knowledge as established by IASSC."

Sissel has a Master in Chemical Engineering from NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) and 20 year's experience within manufacturing and environmental technology. In 2002 she started working at a US company where she was introduced to Six Sigma and completed her Black Belt certification. In 2017, she was also certified Black Belt through IASSC.

Sissel has positive experience using Lean Six Sigma to improve and focuses on measurable results. The courses use practical, recognizable examples and communicate Lean Six Sigma in a way that is easy to understand.
