Virtual Training: Measurement Systems Analysis/Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility

Instructor: Ed McFayden – Consultant, Quality Systems, Lean Six Sigma, Auditing

Description:
Measurement Systems Analysis/Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility is a structured method used to define the amount of variation in the measurement data due to the measurement system. It then compares measurement variation to the total variability observed which defines the capability of the measurement system. Measurement variation consists of two important factors, repeatability and reproducibility. Repeatability is due to equipment variation and reproducibility is due to inspector/operator variation. This workshop will provide participants with the understanding of the importance of data and system to collect data and sources of variation which impacts the measurement system. How to preform variable and attribute GR&R studies as well as interpreting the results of GR&R studies will be explored.
