Regarding your message below,

The important range to test across is not spec, but rather the range of product variation the instrument will see. You will want to know the components of variability across all "pieces" you will be measuring with this device. If all you product is always in spec, then maybe spec range is meaningful, but only beacause this is the range of the product, not just because of the spec range itself.

However, having said that, it is possible that, for a particular device and product, that the variability could more (or less) outside the spec than within it. So, the R&R numbers could look better or worse, depending on this range. And, this could concern the customer.

I understand your position clearly. I do not really understand the customer's. Do they understand the funamentals behind MSA?
