Gage R&R analysis is a statistical tool that measures the amount of variation in the measurement system arising from the measurement device and the people taking the measurement.

Worksheet data in Origin are organized by row index number. For instance, in a gage study, each measurement made on a part might be matched by row index number to a part number, an operator number and a replicate number.
- Type 1 Gage Study
A Type 1 study is used for evaluating the repeatability of a measuring process.
Key input parameters: Measurement Data, Reference, Tolerance, Limit Type: Two-sided or one-sided (Upper Only, Lower Only), Percent of tolerance for calculating Cg, Study variation (num of SD).
- Gage Linearity and Bias Analysis
Assess the linearity of gauge response across the expected range of measurements.
Key input parameters: Part Numbers, Reference Values, Measurement Data, Process Variation (optional)
- Gage R&R Study(Crossed)
In a crossed study, all parts are measured by all operators.
Key Input Parameters: Part Numbers, Operators, Measurement Data, Method of Analysis (ANOVA, Xbar and R), Gage Tolerance, Study Variation (number of standard deviations), Process Tolerance (specification limit), Limit Type: Two-sided or one-sided (Upper Only, Lower Only), Historical Standard Deviation.
- Gage R&R Study(Nested)
In a nested study, each operator measures a unique set of parts.
Key Input Parameters: Part, Operator, Measurement Data, Gage Tolerance, Study Variation (number of standard deviations), Process Tolerance (specification limit), Limit Type: Two-sided or one-sided (Upper Only, Lower Only), Historical Standard Deviation.
- Create Gauge Worksheet
Optional. Generate a worksheet for recording readings from your gage study.
Key input parameters: Number of Parts, Number of Operators, Number of Replicates, Randomization (None, All Runs, Runs within Operators).
