Correction of the Popular Bias Test Method Recommended by ISO/TS16949 for Manufacturing Industries
Measurement systems play important roles in producing consistent, high quality products in manufacturing industries. An important requirement for a measurement system is the consistency or stability of its measurement results. The measurement bias needs to be checked periodically in production to decide whether the measurement system needs to be recalibrated timely to maintain the consistency. A very popular conventional method of statistical bias test recommended by ISO/TS16949 for manufacturing industries has been reviewed. Its flaws and problems are pointed out and illustrated with special examples. A new method of engineering bias test and its equivalent accuracy test have been proposed to correct the problems of the conventional statistical bias test.
