Abstract: This paper discusses about the gauge repeatability and reproducibility (R&R) studies which are carried out in measurement system analysis (MSA) to find out whether the measurement system variations are within the standard limit or not. Variations of readings in measurement system used in inspection process are due to measuring instrument, method of measurement, material, measurement standards, man and environment. This paper discusses how a measurement system used in inspection process can be standardized so that all the variations in measurement systems are eliminated in an effective manner. The repeatability and reproducibility (R&R) value obtained as a result shows that the measurement system variations in inspection process are within the standard limit.
Keywords: Measurement System Analysis (MSA), Repeatability and Reproducibility (R&R.).

Scope of the Article: Manufacturing Processes
