Unit 1: Analyzing Measurement System Variation
In this unit, you will cover the techniques for analyzing the
variation contained within a measurement system itself. After
completing this Unit, you should be able to:
Know the common sources of measurement system variation.
Understand both Type A and Type B evaluations of measurement
Use both graphical and mathematical techniques to evaluate gage
or instrument linearity and stability, and initiate action to
address linearity or stability issues.
Know how to plan and conduct a GR&R study.
Perform R&R analysis for non-destructive measurements, for
destructive measurements, and for attribute measurements.
Use ANOVA and graphical techniques for the R&R analysis.
Use the GR&R data to initiate action to improve the measurement
device's repeatability and reproducibility.
Unit 2: Managing Measurement Systems
In this unit you will learn about the importance of measurement
device calibration management. Upon completion of this unit you will
be able to:
Explain the importance of calibration and management.
Describe the primary sources of measurement error.
Show how the calibration of a measurement device is tied to ISO
Specify your requirements for measurement instrument management
software, if you choose to computerize your records.
