Hi Chooty and welcome to the Cove,

In previous versions of the AIAG manual on MSA studies they worked with the higher constant values and calculated the gauge R&R in relation to the width of the tolerance.
In the latest versions however they worked with the smaller constants and calculated in relation to 1/6th of the tolerance.

There are more posts here on this subject.

Hope this helps you

Best regards,
