Abstract : Thompson (J.A.S.A., 58, 1963) discussed a specific type of problem in which two (or more) instruments are used simultaneously to measure a response. Each item to be measured can be used only once, so that replicate observations are impossible on any instrument, and thus the variance of the instrument readings cannot be estimated directly. Also, if instrument biases exist, they are assumed to be constant throughout the range of observation. Here the authors provide a Bayesian analysis of the two-observer problem and illustrate it with data given by Simon (1946) on thirty fuses used in projectile firings. (Author)
