Re: Measurement Systems Analysis - Miner's Blog Series

It depends on the purpose for which the scale is used. If the scale is used for control of the process (e.g., to control the quantity of an ingredient), or to control the amount of product per package among other quality-related purposes, then an MSA should be performed. However, there may be some non quality-related purposes for which no MSA is required.

Please provide more specific information, and we may better advise you.

Re: Measurement Systems Analysis - Miner's Blog Series

Hi, your comment interest me, and if you can tell me were that is located in the MSA, I'd greatly appreciate it.
My dilima is we use our scale to ship parts and sometimes we weigh the parts when we are involve with inventory. We are a service facility for the OEM's and have very lfew gages and testing equipment.
So I was hoping we did not have to perform an R & R on the scales we have. What are your thoughts

Could you elaborate on the comment "Sometimes we use scales to ship parts"?

Using the scale for a physical inventory for accounting purposes currently does not require an MSA because this is not making a quality decision that affects a customer.

However, if you use the scale to weigh count quantities of product to ship to a customer then it would require an MSA because you are making decisions regarding quality that do affect a customer. If the customer gets shorted on quantity they will be dissatisfied, so I would consider the correct quantity to be a quality attribute.

Thank you for replying back.
When I spoke of, using scales to ship parts, we have a 1000lbs scale that we will weigh our skids on to ensure we do not ship over or under pack the skid, per the required pallet weight specified by our OEM. We use our 50lb scales for inventory count.
We are a service facility, we ship service parts to the OEM's who in turn supply to the dealerships. We are not a production facility.
