The quality of metallurgical products is affected not only by the quality of the production process, but also by the quality of the measured data through which is the production process controlled. For this reason one of the prerequisites for success in the market is quality of the measurement system. This is the reason why the evaluation of measurement system quality is an integral part of the activities of quality planning and quality control in both the automotive and also in the metallurgical industry. At present the evaluation of the quality of used measurement system is mostly performed by using two approaches respectively methodologies. It is a Measurement System Analysis (MSA) methodology developed by the U.S. automotive industry and VDA 5 methodology developed by the German automotive industry. The main objective of this paper is the analysis of the interrelationships among the most important properties of the measurement system evaluated according to MSA guide and measurement uncertainties evaluated according to VDA 5 guide. The factors that have the greatest impact on the differences in the results obtained by using both methodologies are described.
