Gage R&R

**Gage R&R **is the type of Measurement System Analysis (MSA) that is used to quantify how well a variable (continuous) measurement system is working.

Xbar-R

**Xbar-R** (Mean and Range) is a pair of control charts primarily used in Statistical Process Control (SPC) for variable (or continuous) metric when samples are collected at regular intervals from a process. It is a preferred option when the sample size is between 2 and 8. The Range chart helps understand the process variation (and hence is the first chart that is reviewed) while the Xbar chart helps understand the process center. The process is said to be stable only if both the Range and Xbar charts are in control

Q. 167

While analyzing the XBar R Chart in Gage R&R Output, a sound measurement system will have more than 50% of the data points falling outside of the control limits. It is intuitively the reverse of what we want to see (data points to be inside the control limits for a well controlled process). Explain this seeming aberration.Note for website visitors- Two questions are asked every week on this platform.
