The measurement error has the important effect on the decisions made in process capability studies, process setting, process control and inspection. In this paper, we further consider the problem that the true value and the observed value of product characteristic are dependent under the measurement error. By solving the total risk function of product, we can obtain the maximum total risk under the given specification limits of customers.

Keywords: Measurement Error, Specification Limits, Bivariate Normal Distribution
