Fundamentals of Gage R & R

Before cutting an expensive piece of granite for a countertop, a good carpenter will first confirm that they have measured correctly: acting upon faulty measurements could be costly. While no measurement system is perfect, we rely on them to collect data to control quality and monitor changes in critical processes. So, how do you know whether the changes that you see are real and not just the product of a faulty measurement system? After all, if you can’t trust your measurement system, then you can’t trust the data that it produces. Minitab’s Gage R&R study can help you to identify problems with your measurement system, which allows you to trust your data and to make real improvements in your processes.
