Mastering Destructive Gauge R&RApril 17, 2024 3:00 PM UTC

How do you perform an MSA when the item you are measuring is destroyed or altered during the measurement process? Destructive Gauge R&R is the answer. Destructive Gauge R&R is chosen over non-destructive Gauge R&R in scenarios where the measurement process itself inherently destroys or alters the part being measured, making it impossible to measure the same item multiple times without affecting its integrity. This is often required in industries like pharmaceuticals, food, and materials science, where the quality and safety tests are inherently destructive.

In this webinar, Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt Kevin Keller dove into Destructive Gauge R&R and provided attendees with what they needed to know to effectively design and execute a Destructive Gauge R&R study. Ideal for those engaged in Measurement System Analysis, such as quality assurance professionals and engineers, the webinar enhanced the understanding and application of Destructive Gauge R&R principles.

This webinar covered:

  • The essential principles of Destructive Gauge R&R and how it differs from non-destructive methods.
  • How to effectively design a Destructive Gauge R&R study, considering factors such as sample size, material utilization, and statistical significance.
  • Methods to analyze and interpret data from destructive tests, ensuring you can draw accurate conclusions about your measurement system's reliability.
  • Best practices to follow and common pitfalls to avoid in your Destructive Gauge R&R studies.
