Measurement Systems Analysis is a methodology applied to measure the amount of variation in the measurement device. The purpose of conducting the MSA study is to quantify measurement error and to reduce the measurement variation to the maximum possible extent. The study is pursued by referring to various quality control books, papers and experts in this area. Potential problems related to the measurement device (if they exist) would be exposed after this study and recommendations would be made in order to achieve a successful quality improvement.
