MSA or Calibration? What is the first thing to do?

You determine product characteristics you want to control. Next you determine what equipment you need. Then you figure out what you have in-house and what you have to buy. Then you buy what equipment you don't have. Next you get your in-house equipment calibrated, if not already (purchased equipment should be bought calibrated). Then you do measurement studies. Then on with the show!

Sushil Dutt,

Qualityalways is correct.....calibration first.....find a calibration provider accredited by NABL (the accrediting body in India) that includes the type of calibration you need in their scope, and have them calibrate your equipment.

Hope this helps.

For more understading and improving the measurement process, I think we should perform gauge capbility study by following steps below
7 Basic Steps To A Measurement System Analysis
Step 1: Preparation for the study
Step 2: Evaluate Gauge Stability
Step 3: Evaluate Gauge Resolution
Step 4: Determine Gauge Accuracy
Step 5: Calibration
Step 6: Evaluate Gauge Linearity
Step 7: Determine Gauge Repeatability and Reproducibility
