Hello everyone, normally in my workplace exchanges of programs between different cmm or measurement equipment are experienced and being honest I have not found the best method to document these practices as well as to establish the best limit of correlation between the measurement equipment, in last days I found that the statistical control tool has a socalled "Dispersion Analysis" and offers something called "Pearson Coefficient" which provides a data indicating the strength of the correlation between two variables, does anyone have a method to document the correlation between different measuring equipment?
What is the best correlation method?

We used paired T tests, where we measure 36 sample parts on equipment A, assess average of the resultant data to the same 36 parts on equipment B. If the delta between means is less than 10% (of the product's dimensional tolerance), the equipment is considered equivalent.Last edited by louisd; 10252019, 04:02 PM.

Here's Paired T explanation from Minitab help:
Use Paired t to do the following: Determine whether the mean of the differences between two paired samples differs from 0 (or a target value).
 Calculate a range of values that is likely to include the population mean of the differences.
The paired ttest is useful for analyzing the same set of items that were measured under two different conditions, differences in measurements made on the same subject before and after a treatment, or differences between two treatments given to the same subject.
For example, the manager of a fitness facility uses a paired ttest to determine whether a group of participants improved their fitness after an 8week program. If there is a difference in fitness measurements before and after the program, the manager can use the confidence interval to determine whether the difference is practically significant.

the theory is if you have already confirmed the measurement method is sufficient to pass a gage study (Crossed or Anova Gage R&R), and both pieces of equipment have comparable accuracy, there is no reason to conduct a Gage R&R study again on the similar piece of equipment. A statistical assessment of the measured values using Paired T, also looks at the standard deviation. if stddev is significantly higher for the new equipment, it would be a concern. otherwise, paried t comparing the means of each sample set will suffice.
