Standard Practice for Utilization of Test Data to Determine Conformance with Specifications
|Publication Date:||1 July 2021|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
This practice covers guidelines and statistical methodologies with which two parties (see Note 1) can compare and combine independently obtained test results to obtain an Assigned Test Value (ATV) for the purpose of resolving a dispute over product property conformance with specification.
NOTE 1-Application of this practice is usually, but not limited to, between supplier and receiver of a product.
This practice defines a technique for establishing an Acceptance Limit (AL) and Assigned Test Value (ATV) to resolve the dispute over a property conformance with specification by comparing the ATV to the AL.
This practice applies only to those test methods which specifically state that the repeatability and reproducibility values conform to the definitions herein.
The statistical principles and methodology outlined in this practice can also be used to obtain an ATV for specification conformance decision when multiple results are obtained for the same batch of product within a single laboratory. For this application, site precision (R') as defined in Practice D6299 shall be used in lieu of test method published reproducibility (R).
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
