    I am coaching a WB DMAIC project. The project is in Measure phase. MSA(CEM) used for measuring dairy butter fat has lot of variation. In a study, Gage R&R is 80%. By fixing the MSA system will possibly save huge. Can a DMAIC project be done on a MSA itself?

    Well, technically yes but practically as a Six Sigma mentor I would ask for a sustained improvement becasue Six Sigma is about process improvement and not measurement system development. (of course the latter is necessary to achieve the first one)

    Sorry :-(

    I would make sure you find a secondary metric that shows the financial impact of improving the gage.

    Do cycle times reduce, do on-time deliveries improve, does demurrage reduce, etc. Add a secondary metric and of course your project champion can best help out with that.

    Yes,DMAIC project can be used for %GRR improvment.I see in a study your %GRR is 80%,that can’t be accecptable and your measuring system is not ok,you need better measuring system to make sure dairy butter fat rate is under control.thanks.
