Teaches how to evaluate and improve measurement systems including how to perform gage R&R, stability, linearity and reproducibility studies. Also covered are the conversion from attributes to variables, rounding errors, and how to handle destructive testing and attribute inspections. It covers the contents of STAT-08, Statistical Techniques for Test Method Validation, of the book Statistical Procedures for the Medical Device Industry. Further information can be found in the book Optimization & Variation Reduction in Quality in Part II: Measurement. It describes where the measurement tools fit into the Six Sigma Design and Six Sigma Improvement processes.
