Overview/Description
Adequate and accurate measurement systems are vital to the success of any data collection and analysis when striving for business process improvement. And they’re critical to the overall success of any Lean or Lean Six Sigma initiatives in an organization. They can then inform decisions about process improvement, process control, and process design. This course will present measurement system analysis. Specifically, you’ll explore how to address the precision and accuracy of your system. You'll also learn how to carry out various calculations and analysis, such as gauge repeatability and reproducibility study. This course is aligned with ASQ’s 2015 Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge.

Target Audience
Candidates seeking Six Sigma Green Belt certification; quality professionals, engineers, production managers, and frontline supervisors; process owners and champions charged with the responsibility of improving quality and processes at the organizational or departmental level
