Further considerations of application suitability will take into account requirements for an attribute- or variable-type gage, for machine feedback or closed-loop machining, for the number of part characteristics to be checked simultaneously, for the number of "hard" characteristics to be gaged, or, conversely, for the flexibility required to accommodate predicted process variability.
Attribute gaging is generally indicated for applications where the life of the tool that generates the gaged characteristic is predictable, and where anticipated process variation is relatively low (producing a CpK or CP of 1.
Parts are gaged either on the machine tool or in an independent special gaging fixture.
