Critical analysis of the acceptance criteria used in measurement systems evaluation

Suelí Fischer Beckert, Wagner Saucedo Paim
2017 International Journal of Metrology and Quality Engineering  
However, the indiscriminate application of statistical methods and overestimated acceptance criteria has been used in the analysis of measurement systems.  ...  This has caused the disapproval of several measuring instruments that could be appropriately used for measuring tasks.  ...  Figure 1 shows the graphical representation of these characteristics. Repeatability and reproducibility are considered for variation characteristics (Fig. 2 ).  ...
