Measurement System Reliability Assessment

Ryszard Kłos
Published Online: 2015-11-18 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/phr-2015-0009


Decision-making in problem situations is based on up-to-date and reliable information. A great deal of information is subject to rapid changes, hence it may be outdated or manipulated and enforce erroneous decisions. It is crucial to have the possibility to assess the obtained information. In order to ensure its reliability it is best to obtain it with an own measurement process. In such a case, conducting assessment of measurement system reliability seems to be crucial. The article describes general approach to assessing reliability of measurement systems.

Keywords: analysis of Gage R&R; Gage Reliability; Gage Repeatability
