I would like to see a dedicted area under "Quality & Process" which would offer different tools to detect the amount of measurement error associated with all 5 components of measurement error:
Reproducibility / Repeatability.
As a complete MSA is composed of all these components the current offering under Measurement Systems Analysis is misleading and incomplete.
The tools should cover also Attribute studies.
I think most of them are there, but it is not always easy to find it.
I think the easiest thing they could do in the MSA platform is to include the 'Standard' column so that Bias/Linearity can be incorporated. There should also be 100% agreement in output between multiple platforms, as they're based on the same models.
I was surprised by some of the comments being made above, so I had another look, and I believe my confusion stems from the two available "MSA Method"s within "Measurement Systems Analysis". The default setting is "EMP" which I never use, and I believe the user @jszarka is referring to that "MSA Method".
When choosing the "MSA Method" "Gauge R&R" in the Launch Window, there is a field for a "Standard" column, and when choosing "Model Type" "Crossed" Interactions are part of Reproducibility.
The default "MSA Method" can be changed in the main preferences.
The "MSA Method" "Gauge R&R" within "Measurement Systems Analysis" and the "Variability / Attribute Gauge Chart" appear to be closely related platforms as when relaunching a Gauge R&R from Measurement Systems Analysis one ends up in the Launch Window for Variability / Attribute Gauge Chart, which I find confusing.
What I'm missing is a traditional Type I study with cg and cgk output.
