What’s a MSA Continuous (AKA Gage R&R Continuous) Data Test?

MSA for Continuous Data is an experiment designed to assess various elements of continuous or variable data collection including the reliability of the “gage” being used such as a scale, a timer, an odometer etc. The tests also focus on whether or not the operators observe the measurements the same way. These tests determine the level of variation within the data collection process itself.
