Article Abstract

Important aspects of the data collection for gauge capability studies are discussed and recommendations are provided for the planning of a study. The connection between these studies and designed experiments to estimate components of variance is emphasized. Bias of the traditional analysis of gauge repeatability and reproducibility is described and alternatives are suggested.
