Abstract : A test plan is formulated and executed to obtain a random sample of measurements on the U. S. Army Missile Command's Land Combat Support System Electronic Test Group equipment. Analyses of the data establish sample estimates of bias, accuracy, and stimulus setting errors and the standard deviation of measurement on 14 combinations of parameters and scales (e.g., dc voltage, 10-volt scale). The analyses pose hypotheses about the statistics and test these hypotheses against appropriate frequency distributions. They include the principle of analysis of variance, which makes use of bias error, accuracy error, stimulus setting error, and sample variance. These four parameters are used as response variables to establish the effects of the main factors of test durations, time delays, and machines and combinations of the main factors (i.e., interactions) on the computed response statistics for each of the 14 parameters and scales considered.
