Evaluation of inconsistent data of key comparisons of measurement standards
AbstractThis paper deals with evaluation of inconsistent data obtained in key comparisons of national measurement standards. The concept "equivalence of measurement standards" is discussed in the context of metrological compatibility of measurement results. Applications of different methods for evaluating inconsistent data are briefly considered. An explicit practical approach is proposed for evaluating of inconsistent data. The application of the approach is illustrated by analysis of the results of CCQM-K5.
