Approving Vision-Based Measurement Systems in the Presence of Within-Part Variation

Summary: Measurement systems analysis (MSA) is a combination of designed experiments and quantitative criteria used to approve gauges. This article presents a methodology for MSA when the measuring device is robust to minor differences in part orientation and the quality characteristic is variable within the part. The methodology includes a gauge study design, an analysis of variance (ANOVA) model, and estimators for input variances. The technique is developed for a vision gauge used to measure variable surface features of a component and demonstrated with data provided by the manufacturer.
