Measurement systems analysis

Construction Quality Planning Guide, Draft for Consultation, Published by the Construction Innovation Hub in May 2020, defines Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) as: ‘A tool that is used to validate measurement systems; this can range from subjective, manual measuring equipment to automated sensor equipment that outputs measured values. MSA looks not only at the equipment being used but also the human factors, environment, location and inspection process. A complete MSA study can provide confidence to all parties involved in the construction process that the data has been validated through a comprehensive process.’
