Assessment Agreement Analysis

The attribute tuning analysis study not only applies to Pass/Fail ratings used in Go/No-Go measuring instruments, but can also be used to test the consistency of the operators for which they rate on an rating scale. Since implementing an attribute analysis can be time-saving, expensive, and usually uncomfortable for all parties involved (the analysis is simple compared to execution), it`s best to take a moment to really understand what needs to be done and why. Attribute agreement analysis can be a great tool for detecting sources of inaccuracies in a bug tracking system, but it should be used with great care, consideration, and minimal complexity, if used at all. The best way to do this is to audit the database and then use the results of that audit to perform a focused and optimized analysis of repeatability and reproducibility. At this stage, the evaluation of the attribute agreement should be applied and the detailed results of the review should provide a good set of information in order to understand how best to organize the evaluation. Many organizations are now conducting Gauge R&R studies on their measuring instruments. However, the possibilities of carrying out studies similar to those of Go/No-Go measuring instruments are less well known. In strict terms, the term “Gauge R&R” refers only to the study of instruments that measure properties on a continuous scale such as strength, length, viscosity, pH, etc. Often, what you`re trying to judge is too complex to rely on the effectiveness of a single person. Examples include contracts, design drawings with specifications and parts lists, and software code. One solution is to use a team-based approach or an inspection/verification meeting where error identification is at the center of the meeting.

Often, several people can get a common individual assessment that is better than one of them could have produced on their own.
