    I am new to the group.ย  Have a question i could not find a direct answer through a site search.
    Im comparing a standard MSA reference with a new publication by Donald Wheeler which essentially states that most everything published prior to today on Gage R&R is wrong and misleading.
    In Wheelers article he references two methods of obtaining an estimation of the standard deviation, using the control chart method:
    R/d2ย  and R/d2*
    He doesnt site how d2* is calculated or where one could go to get a table of values for it.ย  Im not an expert in statistics and could not find this anywhere on the net.
    Any ideas?ย  e.g, im using a subgroup size of 3, for which d2=1.693, however in his paper, his d2* = 1.906.ย

    Any table in SPC would explain the figure for d2
