The exact model type that you choose depends on how the data was collected. For example, are the operators measuring the same parts (in which case you have a crossed design) or are they measuring different parts (in which case you have a nested design)? To illustrate, in a model where B is nested within A, multiple measurements are nested within both B and A, and there are na•nb•nw measurements, as follows:
•

na random effects are due to A

•

•

The Zs are the random effects for each level of the classification. Each Z is assumed to have a mean of zero and to be independent from all other random terms. The variance of the response y is the sum of the variances due to each z component:
Models Supported by the Variability Charts Platform shows the supported models and what the effects in the model would be.
