Title: An Approach to Combining Results From Multiple Methods Motivated by the ISO GUM
Published: August 01, 2000
Abstract: The problem of determining a consensus value and its uncertainty from the results of multiple methods or laboratories is discussed. Desirable criteria of a solution are presented. A solution based on the ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement is introduced and applied in a detailed worked example. A Bayesian hierarchical model motivated by the proposed solution is presented and compared to the solution.
