AS13100 RM13003 Measurement System Analysis (MSA) Requirements for Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality C1878

Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance

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 two-day 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 seminar begins with an MSA overview, a review of the requirements and considerations, and it will include case studies and an exam.

Learning Objectives

By attending this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Describe the requirements of AS9100 clause, AS13100 Clause 7.1.5 and Reference Manual RM13003
  • Recognize where to find the AS13100 Support Materials and Reference Manuals
  • Explain the scope of and references to RM13003
  • Identify the overview of MSA and the requirements of organization, competence, and elements to consider for MSA
  • Compare these requirements with examples and your own MSA process
  • Describe the IAQG MSA process flow

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 Requirements for Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval
  • C1889 AS13100 Design and Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis and Control Plans
  • C1862 AS13100 8D Problem Solving Requirements for Suppliers

You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.

Peter Amsden

PeterPeter Amsden is currently retired after 35 years in the corporate world. Beginning with General Motors in maintenance at the Ste. Therese Assembly Plant, Peter held positions of increasing responsibility within Operations and Quality until the Firebird & Camaro plant closure in 2002 as Director of Quality Assurance & Vehicle Assembly Engineering. He went on to perform the same duties at GM’s Linden, New Jersey Truck Plant and the Flint, Michigan Powertrain Transmission Complex before starting his own quality consulting firm in 2004. Lured back into manufacturing with Pratt & Whitney Canada as Quality Performance Manager, he was quickly promoted to Director of Supply Management Quality and went on to become the Quality Leader for United Technologies’ “One Company” effort to commonize processes and procedures amongst all its aerospace divisions. This role included supply chain rationalization and integration, and in 2012 Peter helped found the Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Strategy Group. From 2015 to 2018, he was the Secretary of the AESQ and remained active until his retirement in 2019 with several standards writing teams including AS13000, AS13001, AS13004, AS13006, and AS13100. Peter is an ASQ CQE and holds degrees of B.Sc. (Physics) and B.Eng. (Mechanical).
