The Gauge RR option shows measures of variation interpreted for a gauge study of operators and parts.
Once you select the Gauge RR option, if you have not already selected the model type, you are prompted to do so. Then, modify the Gauge R&R specifications.
Select Tolerance Interval to enter the tolerance directly, where tolerance = USL – LSL.
Select LSL and/or USL to enter the specification limits and then have JMP calculate the tolerance.
K is a constant value that you choose to multiply with sigma. For example, you might type 6 so that you are looking at 6*sigma or a 6 sigma process.
Note: To generate the reduced Gauge R&R report, select File > Preferences > Platforms > Variability Chart > Reduced Gauge RR Report.
In this example, the values in the Variation column are the square roots of sums of variance components scaled by the value of k (6 in this example).
Acceptable Percent Measurement Variation shows guidelines for measurement variation, as suggested by Barrentine (1991).

If you have provided a Tolerance Interval in the Enter/Verify Gauge R&R Specifications window, a % of Tolerance column appears in the Gauge R&R report. This column is computed as 100*(Variation/Tolerance). Also, a PrecisiontoTolerance ratio appears at the bottom of the report. This ratio represents the proportion of the tolerance or capability interval that is lost due to gauge variability.

If you have provided a Historical Sigma in the Enter/Verify Gauge R&R Specifications window, a % Process column appears in the Gauge R&R report. This column is defined as follows: 100*(Variation/(K*Historical Sigma)).
