Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) originated with the automotive industry is eventually becoming the defacto standard of the manufacturing industry. Just as processes that produce a product may vary, the process of obtaining accurate measurements and data may also have variations and can produce defects. MSA is a holistic approach to ensure the integrity of data used for analysis and evaluates the entire process of obtaining measurements, i.e test methods, measuring instruments, operations, procedures, software and personnel that affect the assignment of a value to a measurement and to understand the implications of the measurement error. MSA is an important element of Six Sigma methodology and other quality management systems.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing an online programme on Measurement Systems Analysis.
