Raghav:

# sample size/ subgroup size for control charts (stability study)

*5 ongoing, we chart weekly to look for trends.

---------------------------------------------

# number of trials for bias/linearity/R&R studies

*Bias = 1 part (could use an XR chart over time.

*Linearity = 1 part measuring bias over the travel range of the gage

*R&R = 3 people measuring 10 sequentially numbered parts.

--------------------------------------------

# number of appraisers for R&R

*3

---------------------------------------------

These are very basic guidelines that can be revised based on the type and application of the gage.
