|Gage R&R training is the standard Six Sigma Black Belt measurement system analysis tool assuring students' decisions are made from valid data.|
|Format||In-person, instructor-led slideshow with exercises and a quiz to test comprehension.|
|Materials||Each student will receive a 3-ring binder containing print-outs of the slideshow. Assuming satisfactory quiz results graded a few days after class, each student will receive a Certificate of Completion.|

If you're flexible with travel, jump ahead by selecting one of the recommended facilities to the right. Otherwise, the form below helps drill down from state to city to a specific training facility for your Gage R&R Training class.
Pre-enrollment is accepted until the minimum student requirement is met. Once enough students have signed up, then we will reach out to process your payment. If minimum enrollment is not attained, we may ask that you consider an alternate date or location. With that in mind, would any of the 4 states be possible for you? Facilities in these states either have a low minimum student requirement, or already have students signing up:
However, if travel is a limitation for you and none of the states above will work, don't worry. We have several options. And if none of those below suit your needs, feel free to contact us and make a request. We will do everything possible to accomodate. A common request we receive is to do on-site training for companies seeking to get several employees trained at the same time.
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, students learn:
Gage R&R Training Course Overview:
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.
