Re: Gage R&R Procedures: Selecting parts (sample) to measure
For what purpose is the balance used?
If you use it to inspect only, the selection of samples for R&R is not critical. It is only when you use it for process control (e.g., SPC) that the parts must represent the process variation.
If the balance is used for process control, representative process variation is that variation for one specific nominal weight.
The different nominal weights may be checked using a linearity study.
