Study on Measurement System Analysis and its Application in the Data Analysis of LSS


Article Preview

MSA takes a very important role in project application of Lean Six Sigma (LSS). In this paper, the concepts and content of MSA in LSS are introduced, and the R & R model of the MSA is discussed. The average and range analysis method and variance analysis method are elaborated, and a comparative analysis of the commonplace methods in MSA is addressed. Finally, an example is given to illustrate the application of MSA methods in data analysis of LSS improvement project. The results show the impact of different methods on the evaluation conclusions of MSA.
