Data assumption is a dangerous teritory in the world of data. MSA Drilldown is here to make sure that does not happen. So, what is it and how does it verify the data for you?

What is MSA Drilldown?

MSA Drilldown is a step-by-step validation of the source data against predefined criteria. It acts as a detective who wants to make sure whatever we had, we should have had.

Step-by-Step Guide:

1. Drilldown into the Tables: Examine the tables that contain the source data.

2. Define Operational Measurements: For each of the tables, define the Operational Data Measurement

3. Match Data with Definitions: Compare the source data with the operational definitions

4. Proceed with Confidence: If the source data meet the criteria, continue with your project.

Use-Case of the Example:

  • Start Time: registering complaints.
  • Stop Time: completing complaints.
  • MSA Drilldown: Explained By the term “Audit Measurement System Analysis,” the MSA Drilldown should ensure quality:
  • It contrasts the registered and actual data to register inconsistencies in the measurement system.
  • For instance, it compares time when complaints are completed as reported and when they are completed in reality.

Final Thoughts

In a world where data integrity comes first, MSA Drill Down is a savior. When you learn and take its steps – you are assured that the data you see is a reflection of the real situation. Keep your knowledge updated and let your decisions be fact-based. It’s a big payoff.
