Title: On Multiple-Method Studies
Published: October 04, 2010
Abstract: In this paper we review statistical models that describe measurements from a multiple-method study such as in the development of a reference material. We also review requirements for the so-called GUM compliance as this appears to be an important criterion for choosing a model and a method for assigning a value to a measurand of interest, and calculating its uncertainty. For each modeling approach, we identify groups of competing methods and evaluate their status with respect to their statistical characteristics and GUM compliance.
