In production, measurement process capability studies are required. This requirement is obligatory according to several international standards, guidelines and company guidelines of the automotive industry. Due to this requirement, the risk of product liability is to become appreciable and controllable.

While the automotive industry implemented gage capability studies during the last years, today, the determination of the extended measurement uncertainty serves as an alternative to capability studies or to the applicability of measurement processes.

This book gives a comprehensive overview and assists you in dealing with these requirements in industrial production. Several guidelines contained in this book (Bosch, DaimlerChrysler, General Motors Powertrain) apply the procedures described here. The acquired experience confirms the great benefit of these procedures in practice.

The following standards are considered
" DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 and ISO/TS 16949
" QS-9000, MSA Third Edition
" VDA 6.1, VDA 5 "Measurement Process Capability"
