Applying ANOVA to Gauge R&R Analysis

There is increasing focus in automotive to utilize ANOVA to augment the typical Gauge R&R analysis.  Most quality professionals know the MSA Manual says that ANOVA can separate the interaction term between parts and appraisers.  But what does that exactly mean?  Is it good to have an interaction?  Bad?  Can the gauge fail the GRR due to the interaction term?

We will explore the underlying reasons of why ANOVA can be applied and clarify the assumptions used in the MSA.  We will examine multiple examples that exhibit a significant interaction term and compare them against examples that do not.  And we will discuss strategies to minimize the interaction term should that be determined necessary.
