    For MSA studies, any thoughts on how to define when a gauge would fall under the category of "family of gauges". Ford has a clearly defined definition for Family of Gauges, but that has been the only clear definition that I have found. I am interested on how this is dealt with at other companies?

    This is Ford's definition for family of gauges.

    Family of gauges
    Where multiple gauges of the same make, model, size,
    method of use and application (including range of use) are implemented for the same part, use of a
    single gauge R&R covering those multiple gauges (family of gauges) requires
    STA approval.
