Measurement Systems Management

Master the essentials of Measurement Systems Management and elevate your organization’s precision, accuracy, and quality assurance practices.

Course Overview

The Pyzdek Institute Measurement Systems Management workshop is hands-on, workflow-based, and significantly different than typical Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) courses. As it turns out, assuring data validity and establishing a baseline for Continuous Improvement requires a systematic error-proofed workflow that includes much more than a Measurement Systems Analysis like the AIAG GR&R method. In addition, most companies have a need to evaluate inspection processes that result in defect count, pass/fail decisions or other discrete results, a challenge that requires methods not typically covered in an MSA course.

This highly visual Pyzdek Institute course teaches a systematic 3-step approach to Measurement Systems Management including the knowledge, workflow and support materials needed to assure measurement system data are useful for important business decisions. The course content is suitable to the healthcare, plastics, food processing, machining, aerospace, automotive and other manufacturing industries. A Certificate of Accomplishment is issued to attendees that regularly attend and demonstrate a good understanding of the course content.

  • Format: Instructor-led
  • Level: Intermediate
  • Location: On-site, Online or Hybrid
  • Duration: 24 Hours


The course can be taught with JMP®, SigmaXL® or Minitab®, statistical software. For any software choice, attendees should have a good understanding of software fundamentals including navigation, menu structure, data integrity, annotations, and graphing. The course includes a 2-hour online session for those without statistical software experience.

To get the most out of the course, attendees should have their own PC, a recent version of the statistical software, a 2-way headset and a webcam. Two monitors are highly recommended.
