Calibration and Measurement for Measurement Equipment and Process (MTT101)

22 August 2017 - 23 August 2017

OBJECTIVES
This course has been designed to provide basic calibration of inspection, testing and measuring skills for the technical personnel. Basic measurement concepts will be discussed with emphasis placed on acquiring practical skills to improve calibration and maintenance of this critical and sensitive equipment. Use of basic measuring tools will be included to provide “hands-on” learning in the classroom.

COURSE OUTLINE
MODULE 1: ASSESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF YOUR MEASUREMENT SYSTEM
• Key indicators of a good measurement system
• Measurement system error – bias, linearity, repeatability, reproducibility, stability, accuracy
• Source of measurement system errors
• How to reduce measurement system error

MODULE 2: PERFORM AND ANALYZE GAGE R&R STUDY
• Perform GR & R (Long & Short Method) and ANOVA
• Analyze Gauge R&R report – short form, long form, ANOVA
• Use Statistical software to analyze Gauge R&R report
• Avoid common pitfalls of conducting Gauge R&R study

MODULE 3: LONG TERM GAGE MONITORING
• Use Control Charts in monitoring gauge performance
• Test for Stability
• Analyze trends, patterns, in gauge past present and future performance

MODULE 4: UNDERSTANDING UNCERTAINTY
• Common calibration definitions – uncertainty, traceability, confidence intervals, Test Accuracy Ratio (TAR/TUR)
• Type 1 & Type 2 Uncertainty
• Understand and calculate uncertainties
• Sources of calibration uncertainties
• Develop uncertainty matrix

MODULE 5: INTERPRETING CALIBRATION REPORTS
• Use calibration reports to Accept/Reject a gauge
• Case study examples of interpreting calibration reports
• Application of uncertainty in determine the suitability of equipments for a measurement characteristics

MODULE 6: PRACTICAL CALIBRATION ISSUES
• Determining the best calibration interval
• Calibration vs verification, gauge correlation
• Disposition of the “problem” gauge
• Working with external calibrators/calibration labs

MODULE 7: ISO9001: 2000 REQUIREMENTS ON CALIBRATION
• Understand and apply ISO9001:2000 requirements on Calibration
• Brief overview of other ISO requirements: ISO10012, ISO/TS16949, ISO/IEC 17025
• Calibration laboratory management/good practices

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Maintenance engineers, technicians, QC Supervisors/Inspectors Lab. Technicians, and Production Supervisors. All engineering, technical, production and quality personnel involved in instrument calibration and management.
