Hello,
There is a sentence in MSA which says: "The gage or measurement system should be given a full dimensional layout and functional test, where applicable, at the measurement system supplier before shipment. "

What is a dimensional layout?

What section and page number? MSA 4? I would like to read it in context.

Chapter I – Section D
Measurement Source Development --> Qualification at the Supplier (page 35)
This is part of an entire section covering the design and procurement of special purpose measurement systems. If you refer back to Section C on page 25, subsection Complexity, it addresses the scalability of these guidelines (not requirements) based on complexity. Given that, any measurement device that you would purchase "off the shelf" would not require a full dimensional layout, whereas a complex measurement system designed to your specifications may require it.

As to what a dimensional layout is, @Bev D has answered that above.
