## Attribute MSA with SigmaXL

Implement an Attribute MSA with SigmaXL Data File: “Attribute MSA” tab in “Sample Data.xlsx” (an example in the AIAG MSA Reference Manual, 3rd Edition). Step 1: Reorganize the original data into four new columns (i.e., Appraiser, Assessed Result, Part, and Reference). Select the entire range of the original data (“Part”, “Reference”, “Appraiser A”, “Appraiser B”…

Use JMP to Implement an Attribute MSA This article discusses using an Attribute MSA with JMP. It’s important to know because whenever something is measured repeatedly or by different people or processes, the results of the measurements will vary. Variation comes from two primary sources: Differences between the parts being measured The measurement system We…

Read More## Run Chart with Minitab

Why we use a Run Chart A run chart is a chart used to present data in time order. These charts capture process performance over time. The X axis indicates time and the Y axis shows the observed values. A run chart is similar to a scatter plot in that it shows the relationship between X and…

What is Process Capability with Minitab? Process capability with Minitab measures how well the process performs to meet given specified outcome. It indicates the conformance of a process to meet given requirements or specifications. Capability analysis helps to better understand the performance of the process with respect to meeting customer’s specifications and identify the process…

What is a Box Plot with Minitab? A box plot with Minitab is a graphical method to summarize a data set by visualizing the minimum value, 25th percentile, median, 75th percentile, the maximum value, and potential outliers. A percentile is the value below which a certain percentage of data fall. For example, if 75% of…

Read More## Histogram Rendering with Minitab

What is Histogram Rendering with Minitab? A histogram is a graphical tool to present the distribution of the data. The X axis represents the possible values of the variable and the Y axis represents the frequency of the value occurring. This graphical summary consists of adjacent rectangles erected over intervals with heights equal to the frequency…

What is a Scatter Plot with Minitab? A scatter plot with Minitab is a diagram to present the relationship between two variables of a data set. A scatter plot consists of a set of data points. On the scatter plot, a single observation is presented by a data point with its horizontal position equal to…

Read More## Multi Vari Analysis with SigmaXL

Learning Multi-Vari Analysis with SigmaXL Multi Vari Analysis with SigmaXL is a graphic-driven method to analyze the effects of categorical inputs on a continuous output. It studies how the variation in the output changes across different inputs and helps us quantitatively determine the major source of variability in the output. Multi Vari charts are used…
