RIASQ Dinner Meeting – November 17, 2016
How to Calibrate Humans: An MSA Approach for Evaluating Attributes
An ASQ Quality Management Division - Inspection Division Joint Webinar
Humans CAN BE calibrated. Many businesses need to rely upon the skills of their personnel to interpret attribute features.
This interactive session enables participants to learn how to develop, create, execute and interpret an Attribute Agreement
Analysis (AAA) so that rework and returns can be effectively reduced. An AAA is an "MSA for attributes." Attendees will see how they can apply this tool to their own organizations while learning how to mitigate business cost exposure.
Here are the general concepts covered in the session:
Defining Attribute Agreement Analysis (AAA): 20 min. A review of basic AAA
analysis; the 3 basic types of agreements: Agreement with oneself,
Agreement to a peer, Agreement to the standard; the "Statistical AAA" and
the Kappa value; confidence levels for the result bands; incorporation of
AAA into the Control Plan and frequency of "calibration".
How It Works: 10 min. While reviewing the concepts, the audience will be
undergoing a live simulation via an in-session exercise so that they can
experience the 3 basic types of agreements. This is a very quick exercise.
Benefits of the Calibrated Human: 10 min. Multiple benefits when
calibrating the human operator will be reviewed via an interactive
Pros/Cons discussion, including general benefits of reductions in
internal/external rework, returns, premium freight, arguments, etc.
Key Objectives: To help people understand how AAA
can be effectively utilized for mitigating business loss; increased
understanding of how to actually perform the analysis; build confidence in
the ability to calibrate a human operator; develop an objective method to
qualify a human "gage"
