AS13003 Measurement System Analysis (MSA) Requirements for Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality C1878

AS 13003:2015 stipulates requirements to establish an acceptable measurement system (for variable and attribute features) 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 AS13003 to define the minimum requirements for conducting MSA for variable attribute assessment on characteristics as defined on the drawing specification. This standard also defines the minimum acceptance limits for MSA.

This two-day course will provide common requirements for applying appropriate measurements system analysis tools; the acceptance criteria to be applied; as well as a guidance on the efficiency of the application (read across) 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.

Learning Objectives
By attending this seminar, 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
