AS13100 RM13003 Measurement System Analysis (MSA) Requirements for Aerospace Engine  Supplier Quality 
I.D. # C1878 Duration 2 Days

This course is verified by Probitas Authentication as meeting the AS9104/3A requirements for continuing Professional Development.

AS13100 stipulates requirements to establish an acceptable measurement system for use on aerospace engines parts and assemblies. Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) is used to evaluate and improve measurement systems in the workplace because it evaluates the test method, measuring instruments, and the process of acquiring measurements. The Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Strategy Group published RM13003 to define the minimum requirements and acceptance limits for conducting MSA for variable attribute assessment on characteristics as defined on the drawing specification. 

This course will provide common requirements for applying appropriate measurements system analysis tools and the acceptance criteria to be applied, as well as a guidance on the efficiency of the application and mitigation strategies for non-capable measurement systems. This course begins with an MSA overview, a review of the requirements and considerations, and it will include case studies.

Learning Objectives
By attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the key elements of MSA
  • Explain what may contribute to measurement variation
  • Define the MSA requirements and applicability
  • Recognize terminology and concepts including bias, variation, normal distribution, linearity, stability, repeatability, and reproducibility
  • Identify measures of variation (mean, standard deviation, and variance)
  • Explain elements to consider when conducting MSA
  • Record information on an audit checklist for MSA
  • Recall information from case studies

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for quality professionals in the aerospace engine manufacturing sector who seek compliance with SAE¿s AS13100 requirements and the expertise to conduct MSA for variable attribute assessments. The specific job roles that will benefit from this course include Quality Managers and Engineers, Supplier Quality Engineers and Managers, Quality Technicians, Quality Inspectors, Metrologists, and Calibration Technicians. Both new and experienced quality practitioners who lead, develop, implement, and/or review effectiveness of Measurement System Analysis (MSA) according to AS9100 Clause, AS13100 Clause 7.1.5 and RM13003 requirements should be trained in these powerful measurement system tools.

Participants should consider taking other courses in the SAE quality portfolio to support their competency with the AS13100 tools. These courses include:
  • C2213 AS13100  RM13145 Requirements for Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval
  • C1889 AS13100 and RM13004  Design and Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis and Control Plans
  • C1862 AS13100 and RM13000 8D Problem Solving Requirements for Suppliers
