Hello Shesha!

What kind of information are you trying to find? It seems that receiving/acceptance of gauges should be fairly fundamental, and should probably already have some information in your own procedures.

Are these gauges new to your process? Are you new to the process? Are these specialty gauges?

If you get a chance and can provide a little more detailed about your product/industry, it would be greatly appreciated!

As of now we do not have any procedures for that.
I am basically looking for, to know how a Receving Gauge need to be manufactured. The gauges are new to the process as the product is a development part in our organisation. I am not new to the process and these will be no doubt speciality gauges.

We have a non-ferrous foundry and a full fledge shop floor and supplying for major automotive manufacturers and electical in India and abroad.

I know that GM used to have a comprehensive standard for gage design, and they probably still do, but I have no access to it or recollection of what it was called. Perhaps someone here who's doing business with them (or some other OEM with a similar document) can help. I did find this (PDF file)with the help of my good friend Mr. Google.

I am going thru this seems okay, but was looking for more than this.
I want it with an example. I did search the google but everything in vain...
We have castings and machined components(with some where around 50-60 dimensions) but I do not want for all the dimensions but will be surely looking to cover most of them.

You're not going to be able to find a book that will tell you how to do the impossible (or at best, highly impractical). Dedicated fixtures/gages will be able to verify perhaps three or four characteristics, but not much more than that. If you want a hard fixture that will verify "most of" 50 dimensions, you need this guy to design it for you: :magic:

An alternative is some sort of laser scanning system, like this. The link is just an example, not a recommendation.

Sorry Jim,
I do not agree with you.
I am sure that we can very well measure more than 10dimensions in the receiving gauge. Because I our organisation we have used such type of gauges, but I do not know how to design that. I our org my Manufacturing Manager was doing this designing and this does very well.

"More than 10" is different from saying "most of" 50-60.
