# How do I do a GR&R study if there is no specified tolerance?

How do I do a GR&R study if there is no specified tolerance?

I am writing a proposal for a supplier to include GR&R and Cpk data with shipments. One very important specification for this material invloves only a lower limit (example, >50 MPa). All of the formulas I have seen for EV and AV involve using the specified tolerance. Since I don't have a tolerance specified for this parameter, is it possible to calculate the %R&R?? Is it possible to do a GR&R study without changing this spec?

I would appreciate any suggestions. I will be performing a process capability analysis (Cpk) for this particular parameter and I know this is possible when only one limit is specified.

Thanks!!

Kristin,

I'm not sure about formulas for your situation, but I pose this:

As the customer, could you set an upper limit for your supplier?

i.e. >50 ----- < 300

I guess I would have to ask why there is no upper limit? I don't know your process.

Only you or your company has the knowledge to know what that upper limit would be.

Hi
there are three types to calculate EV%, AV% and R&R%:

EV%=EV/RF
AV%=AV/RF
R&R%=R&R/RF

where, Reference Figure is one of these parameters:
- Tolerence(USL_LSL)
- Process Variation (6 sigma)
- Total Variation(TV=PV+R&R)

If you don't have Tolerence, you can use two types else to calculate those parameters.

Contact AIAG and request an MSA Manual.
Look for the forms that utilize process variation rather than tolerance for finding the percentage R&R. ANOVA does this.
