Overview/Description Target Audience Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
The adequacy and accuracy of measurement systems is vital to the success of any data collection and analysis, and therefore critical to the overall success of any Six Sigma initiatives in an organization. Measurement systems encompass devices, procedures, and the human element of measurement, which together must produce correct measurements and comply with appropriate standards. This course examines how to analyze a measurement system to help it produce correct measurements and minimize its proportion of variability in the overall process variability. It introduces key elements of measurement system capability using gauge repeatability and reproducibility (GR&R) studies, measurement correlation, bias, linearity, percent agreement, and precision to tolerance (P/T) ratio. This course is aligned to the ASQ Body of Knowledge and is designed to assist Green Belt candidates toward their certification and become productive members on their Six Sigma project teams.
Candidates seeking Six Sigma Green Belt certification; quality professionals, engineers, production managers, and frontline supervisors; and process owners and champions charged with the responsibility of improving quality and processes at the organizational or departmental level
