Product Development: PD17 - Using Gage R&R Tools to Validate and Characterize Acoustic Measurement SystemsPresenter:
Emily Wigley, Acoustical Engineer, Shure Inc. - Chicago, IL, USA
Product performance is validated through measuring, but how is the system used to take the measurement validated? This is of particular concern in developing end-of-line production measurement systems that are customized to meet the needs of a specific product. A Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility (Gage R&R) study is a set of statistical analysis tools that can be used to characterize the performance of a measurement system and is the first step in determining product performance limits. This session will cover the different types of gage studies, when and how to perform them, and how the use the results to improve the measurement system. Example studies from Shure product development projects will be included.
