Maturity level

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): Robust manufacturing process.

Maturity level estimate

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): Automotive SPICE .

Maturity level profile

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): Automotive SPICE .

MBO - Management by Objectives

Management by objectives so that managers have fewer things to worry about and initiative is promoted as well as staff motivation. This requires establishment of procedures for setting, monitoring and achieving objectives.

Means of production

The term stands for all the equipment and its components used for production, adjustment, testing, transportation and storage of customer's products (e.g. machinery, equipment, tools, agents, gauges).

Measurement

Measurement is an experimental procedure to determine particular values of physical quantities as multiples of a unit or reference values.

Measurement check (measurement)

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): VDA volume 5 .

Measurement process capability

Capability of a measurement process for presumed task within a control process with specific consideration given to accuracy (extended measurement uncertainty). As regards variable tests (measurements), the capability is demonstrated if the gPP indicator, extended measurement uncertainty against tolerances (gPP = 2.U/T) does not exceed the pre-defined limits.

Measurement uncertainty

Parameter associated with the results of a measurement which characterises the dispersion of the values that could reasonably be attributed to the measurand.

Measuring equipment

Measuring equipment, i.e. measuring instrument, software, measurement standard, reference material or auxiliary apparatus or combination thereof necessary to realize a measurement process.
