Gage Repeatability

Factors that affect measurement system variation can be studied using the gage repeatability and reproducibility (GR&R) technique.

Measurement system variation can be characterized by location (stability, bias, linearity) and width or spread (repeatability and reproducibility).

Gage repeatability and reproducibility (GR&R) study can be applied in most manufacturing-related measurement systems. It may be used as:

  • A criterion for judging new measuring equipment.

  • A comparison among measuring devices.

  • A means for improving performance of measuring instruments.

  • A comparison for measuring equipment before and after repair.

  • A required component for calculating process variation and the acceptability level for a production process.

  • A measure of the need for training in how to use measuring instruments.
