This course discusses, demonstrates and trains in simple but powerful techniques to assure and improve the accuracy, precision and consistency of your measurement processes’ effectiveness. You will learn how to set-up and conduct “gauge R&R” (repeatability and reproducibility) studies. You will also learn traditional plus practical and insightful new ways to analyze and interpret the results, what to do about them and to sustain optimized measurement processes with simple, practical approaches for monitoring their stability. We will also address measurement of continuous variables (e.g., distance, temperature, thickness and attribute variables (e.g., number of error or defects, proportion defective). You will learn how to deal with non-destructive, semi-destructive and destructive measurement processes.
A laptop is required for this course.
A basic understanding of statistics is helpful for this course; however, the instructor will review basic statistical concepts as required for the interpretation of results.
