It helps in understanding how to perform and evaluate bias and linearity study on variable measurement system. It evaluates the test method, measuring instruments, and the entire process of obtaining measurements to ensure the integrity of data.


Measurement System Analysis service assures that measurement system must be in statistical control; i.e. the variation in the measurement system is due to common causes only and not due to special causes.


Measurement System Analysis ensures that variability of the measurement system must be small compared with the manufacturing process variability. It helps in establishing correct measurement system.


Measurement System Analysis (MSA) is a bottom-line component for several of the quality management and quality improvement actions taken in an organization. It employs scientific tools to calculate the total amount of variation in measurement by validating the measurement system and lastly minimizing the factors which contribute in variation of the data. MSA stretches it’s analysis from equipments to software and personnel and from operations to procedures, involved in the process of measurement. The significance of MSA can be explained as:

  1. It is a mandatory requirement for TS 16949 certification.
  2. It identifies the origination point in the process where variation starts.
  3. Minimizes defects
  4. It is very efficient in upgrading product quality.

There are tons of benefits of Measurement System Analysis out of which the most denoting are:

  • Stability: Consistency of measurements
  • Accuracy: Amount of bias in the system
  • Linearity: It is a measure of the bias values

MSA involves activities like preparation, evaluation of stability and resolution after which accuracy is determined, calibration of the equipments, linearity is evaluated and finally repeatability and reproducibility are determined. Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) has included MSA in their manual where ISO/TS16949 is mandate.
