Hi
+/ 0.005 allows for 0.005 in the X Direction, as well as +/0.005 in the Y Direction.
This Equates to a Hypotenuse, at a 45 Degree Angle, of 0.007 (Radius) Times 2 = .014 True Position RFS.
Not Considering the Tolerance for the MMC, the 0.002 MMC, would be a severe and dramatic reduction of the total tolerance.
0.002 True Position is…[Read more]

Hi –
The General Rule of Thumb is +/ 25% of the Sample Size.
Example: Average Sample Size of 100 +/ 25% = +/25, it is OK to use the same Control Limits.
If the Sample Size is <=74, or >=126, then use Different Control Limits.
These different control limits are sometimes referred to as a Manhattan Skyline.

Sigma is the Standard Deviation, not the formula you indicated 1 year, 8 months ago

Hello –
If you have a negative CPk, it means you have at least 50% Failures, assuming the formula is correct.
The lower the negative CPk, the more Percent failures.
As an Example; Negative 1 CPk would be about 99.7% Failures, to the Specification
Then look at the CP Value. If CP is positive, you probably only need to adjust the mean (…[Read more]

I have done hundreds of leak testers, with no problem
assure that you have a maximum of 10% gage resolution.
use normal Gage R & R, with Normal Bell Curves.
Use SPC with Normal or Pearson Curve

Hello –
I would like to provide some additional insight.
1.) Assure that the Gage is Acceptable for the measurements.
1.1) Check Increments and Resolution, Gage Resolution should be less than 10% Resolution, I recommend 5%.
Example: +/ .010 = Total Tolerance of .020. Increments to be less than .001 = 5% Resolution.
1.2) Gage Accuracy,…[Read more]
