Silly, yes. Serious, Yes. Even after 5 years, someone in management is questioning QA's need for 3x3x10 MSA to be done by the operators that run the parts and use the gages. Question I need proof of: Why can't competent, but, non-production, indirect labor people do the Gage R&R. Forget that it's common sense. Where is it written that it MUST be done that way? I can't find anything direct in the TS MSA Manual. Thanks!
