As measurement system variation increases, the probability of getting a correct value from a measurement system reduces. This concept is portrayed best by using a gage performance curve.

Stability and linearity: Keys to an effective measurement system

Calibrations and R&R studies provide some information about changes in the measurement system, but neither of these provides an accurate picture of what is happening to the measurement process over time. Knowing the stability and linearity of the measurement system will increase your ability to use the data gathered to make decisions.
