Abstract : This report describes how a Latin Squares type of experimental design can be used to evaluate the reliability (repeatability) of tests, and to determine the major source or unreliability through analysis of variance. A humorous example of barrel weighing at a food manufacturers is used to illustrate the layout of the experimental design and the computational procedures in the analysis of variance. (Author)
