MSA kurs

Measurement system analysis (MSA)


Reliable measurements are necessary to make good decisions.

This course teach you how to use Measurement System Analysis (MSA) to consider precision, accuracy, sensitivity, and capability of your measurements.

Lean Tech offers virtual and physical classroom training:


About the training


You learn to use Measurement System Analysis to assess variation in the measurement system (a measurement system can include the measurement method, measuring instrument and persons performing the measurement).

Reliable measurements are necessary to make good decisions.

You learn to create Control Charts to determine various characteristics of your measurement system (repeatability, reproducibility, stability, sensitivity & capability).

We use excel to do the MSA (other statistical tools like Minitab, JMP or Sigma XL can be used for training arranged on request).

It is recommended to complete a course in Statistical Process Control - SPC before taking this course.


Learning objectives


This training enables you to:

  • 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

You learn to assess precision, accuracy, stability, sensitivity and capability of a measurement systems.

  • Assess characteristics of a measurement system:
    • Precision and accuracy
    • Repeatability and reproducibility
    • Stability, bias and linearity
    • Sensitivity (resolution)
    • Capability - ability to detect differences in the medium being measured
  • 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
  • Evaluate the measurement method

We 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.

Galton board

The Galton board is used to provide a visual understanding of histogram, average, variation and simple statistics.

We generate data from the Galton board and create control charts.

We carry out a measurement system analysis using the data from the Galton board.

We determine repeatability, reproducibility, sensitivity and capability.

We discuss applications that are relevant to you. 

Practical information

Courses can be arranged on request and customized to your business needs.

Your own data can be used in examples and exercises. 

Open courses are arranged according to the Course Calendar.

You can start e-learning when you want. You have access for a year and unlimited attempts to successfully complete multiple-choice exam.

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


Course location varies; check "Place" in Course Calendar.

Lean Tech is located at Igloo Innovation at SNØ (Snøfonna 5, 1470 Lørenskog) and organizes courses here.

We have an agreement with Thon Hotels and organize courses in other locations as needed.

Sissel Pedersen Lundeby is IASSC (International association for Six Sigma certification) accredited trainer associate:

"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 and more than 20 years' experience within manufacturing and environmental technology. She has practiced Lean Six Sigma since 2002, completing Black Belt projects and certification through Cytec (2004) and IASSC (2017).

She use Lean Six Sigma to create measurable results and want her course participants to be successful improving their processes. That's why her training focus on practical application.
