Variable Gauge Repeatability and Reproducibility Study Using the Analysis of Variance Method

Summary: [This abstract is based on the author's abstract.]

A gauge repeatability and reproducibility (R&R) study is presented. It uses the analysis of variance method. Part variation is not considered for gauge R&R analysis. Operator, part, and replicates represent the two-way experimental design model. The analysis of variance method is used to obtain variances for standard deviations for determining the gauge R&R. A ratio of 5.15 total standard deviations (or 99 percent of gauge R&R) to part tolerance range is used as a gauge capability index to assess gauge performance. An example of an actual gauge R&R study is provided.
