## What is an acceptable GR&R?

Rule of thumb for GR&R is that a result of 10% or less means that the system is acceptable. Most of the variation is from the parts and not the measurement system. If the GR&R is less than 30%, the system may be accepted, but there should be some plan to review the system for improvement.

## What is MSA and GR&R?

Measurement system analysis (MSA), also known as a gage R&R (GRR) study, is a critical tool in understanding the capabilities of any system used to measure a part or a specimen.

**How is GRR tolerance calculated?**

If the tolerance (Upper spec – Lower spec) is given, the %tolerance is calculated by dividing the Study Var for each component by the specified tolerance. If only one specification limit is given, the percent tolerance is half the Study Var for each component divided by the one-sided tolerance.

### Does tolerance affect Gage R&R?

The range or the engineering tolerance does not affect the measurement, but is an important factor in evaluating the viability of the measurement system.

### When should MSA be studied?

The rule is very simple: Whenever a measurement is being used to assess the quality or quantity of a product, a measurement system study is required. This means that all measurement systems should be assessed statistically.

**What is PV in MSA?**

In that MSA data analysis, PV= Rp* K3. This is my first time to see such formula, in American , supplier really use this formula to calculate PV%. In MSA data , some PV% are less or more than 100.

#### What does P T ratio mean?

“P/T ratio is the ratio of the precision of a measurement system to the (total) tolerance of the manufacturing process of which it is a part. If the P/T ratio is low, the impact on product quality of variation due to the measurement system is small.

#### What is Gage Six Sigma?

Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility is commonly referred as Gage R&R. It’s a method to assess the measurement system’s repeatability and reproducibility. In other words, Gage R&R studies are carried out to discover how much of the process variation is due to the measurement system.

**How do you do GR&R?**

A GR&R study can be planned using the following 5 steps:

- Define the objective of the study.
- Define the components of the study.
- Make the measurements.
- Calculate the %GR&R.
- Take action to improve the measurement process.

## How do you measure tolerance?

In terms of measurement, the difference between the maximum and minimum dimensions of permissible errors is called the “tolerance.” The allowable range of errors prescribed by law, such as with industrial standards, can also be referred to as tolerance.

## What is the purpose of a GR&R?

Gage repeatability and reproducibility (GR&R) is defined as the process used to evaluate a gauging instrument’s accuracy by ensuring its measurements are repeatable and reproducible.

**How is a GR&R conducted?**
