How to “validate/qualify” a new measurement equipment?

#1
So I’ve been tasked to “validate/qualify” a new measurement equipment we intend to buy, a handheld CMM. Aside from doing a traditional GRR on it and our existing CMM (traditional) and then comparing the results, I really can’t think of what else to do? Anyone has any ideas?
What tests, validations, etc. have you done to qualify a new machine, equipment, or measuring device?
The idea being that we are doing our due diligence and making sure that the machine does what it claims it does before we spend our money on it.

Before anything else, calibration.

I imagine you'd want to verify that the device's specifications and functions meet the needs. E.g., that the device has the precision required to perform the measurements to the requisite level of accuracy.

for a complex piece of measurement equipment the vendor often has a validation package as an option. One that they will do, or templates that they will provide to you to at least for the IQ and OQ (I would include calibration here). For the PQ on a piece of measurement equipment I would do an MSA base do on the parts you will actually be measuring.
