Training package to help train operators how to use a measuring devices properly

Hi Everyone!

We've been a little lax in gage R & R studies, but are picking up the pace and trying to get them done on each "type" of equipment.

Our calibration technician came to me the other day and asked if I could put together a training package to help train operators how to use a measuring devices properly. He realized while observing operators performing R & R studies that the operators really were not using calipers properly. We've noticed that some operators are really not using tape measures correctly either. They rush thru jobs. Of course all of this just screams nonconforming parts.

We work with stainless and aluminum tubing to manufacture parts.

Does anyone have anything they have already put together - maybe willing to share or can you point me in the right direction?? I've already gathered a bunch of stuff on calipers. I am usually pretty good at putting training packages together, but I don't use the devices or tooling here - I just write the stuff:paint: .

Re: Gage R & R Assistance

Not using calipers properly...oh my! That involves OJT and supervision until old habits are broken. And the person doing training on that had better be right! However, preliminary training can be done with tools like this one. I am not affiliated with the company. This attachment is something you can access right away.

Did the people doing GR&R on calipers handle them right? How do you know?

If the equipment isn't handled properly in a GR&R study, the study must be redone to eliminate this question in accuracy.

Re: Gage R & R Assistance

Thanks Jennifer for your reply!

Yes, we seem to have an ongoing problem with department leads NOT training operators properly. We have advanced training efforts in several areas of our plant. We didn't realize how big a problem our operators had until our calibration technician was forced into R & R studies. He is trained to use calipers and such - so he is the one who raised the red flag that operators are not using this equipment correctly, even though operators think they know how to use them!

The links you offered may help. I may order the CD. Based on the sample I viewed, it looks like something I would have put together if I had all the necessary data.

The R & R studies that our technician attempted to do using the operators were voided out.

Thanks again for your input.

Thread retitled and moved to the 17025 forum because it really is about using measurement devices, not Gage R&R.

This is something that I did when I was the Gage Technician.
I created a powerpoint presentation showing how to read various analog gages - gave examples and practice exercises on screen as well as having an hour of hands on practice afterward.
I explained to them all that they could not expect to develop proper feel and technique overnight and when unsure, ask a co-worker or supervisor or someone from Quality to double check a reading on occasion just to help build confidence - and especially if they were unsure of something.
I'd like to share this presentation with you but I might get in trouble since I developed it on company time and technically, it belongs to them.
All I did though, is get out a digital camera and took some really detailed pictures and made it clear enough for an elementary student (no disrespect meant... but that's what you should really focus on).

In my opinion, your calibration technician would be a highly qualified person to help do this... my personal feeling is that they should not pass this off on to someone else. At a minimum, they might request assistance for the pictures and perhaps working with powerpoint if they are not familiar with it.

Good Luck,
Jane

do you use the same vendor to buy all your measuring devices?
If so they may be willing to come in and do some training.
The guy we buy our Mitutoyo and Mahr tools from has offered this several times.

Hello Marc,
As I stated, it technically belongs to my company since I created it on company time... but I will ask permission from my superiors.
If approved, I might need your assistance in uploading it - the files are so huge. They have MANY pictures and are voice enhanced - an hour and a half long total.

If you get approval and the file is big, just PM me and I'll give you an email address to send it to.
