Why You WANT Variable Gage Analysis (GR&R) Results

Some manufacturers shy away from conducting gage repeatability and reproducibility (GR&R) studies because the results are inconsistent. But because variability is unavoidable, your goal is to calibrate that measuring device to consistently return an acceptable range of results.
