    I am being asked to evaluate a machine repeatability study using Minitab’s ANOVA method of Gage R and R. The problem is that the data was not collected using established methods. Ten parts were run ten times on the same machine. I can use the dialogue box, but I get the following error message:
    Gage R&R Study – ANOVA Method
    * NOTE * No or identical values for Operator – will analyze data without
    operator factor.

    Is this still a valid analysis? If so, what are the established limits for acceptable percent study variation? Is it still 30% or lower for AIAG?

    I am a MBA student at University of Miami. If you want you can send me the data and I run the analysis for you. I can even take it to my Design of Experiments professor.
