Who is Gage R&R Training for?
Gage R&R Training is for anybody who wants to make sure the quality of their decisions isn't being harmed by bad data. In our course, Houston students learn:
Gage R&R Training Course Overview:
Gage R&R training is the standard Six Sigma Black Belt measurement system analysis tool assuring Houston students' decisions are made from valid data. R&R stand for repeatability and reproducability; basically making sure measurement systems are valid beyond what can be detected through simple calibration. All calibration finds is bias away from a standard; it's not enough. Never assume your gage is good just because it's calibrated. We've seen companies waste 5-digit figures on incapable gages, and 6-digit figures scrapping good parts because of too much error in their measurement system. Remember, a measurement system includes its user and the process of using the gage. This is often where excessive error resides. To save you the cost of Minitab or SigmaXL, our Gage R&R training includes an Excel spreadsheet to crunch the numbers. Last time we checked, single licenses for Minitab and SigmaXL were $1,795 and $299 respectively. So, this class pays for itself just by including our spreadsheet.
