Mandel, J.; Nanni, L.

NBS Special Publication 700-2; Industrial Measurement Series; 65p. March 1986.

This paper was published originally as a chapter in the book entitled "Quality Assurance Practices for Health Laboratories." It is for that reason that the examples used as illustrations are taken from health-related fields of research. However, the statistical concepts and methods presented here are entirely general and therefore also applicable to measurements originating in physics, chemistry, engineering, and other technical disciplines. The reader should have no difficulty in applying the material of this paper to the systems of measurement in his particular field of activity.
