u_{i }: combined standard uncertainty of x_{(rep)i}
Seven participating laboratories determined the mass of the travelling standards VSL1 and J2 (Package 1) while the remaining seven determined the mass of the travelling standards VSL2 and J3 (Package 2).
As Pilot laboratory, the BIPM determined the mass of the travelling standards of each package at the beginning and at the end of the comparison, and a few times during the course of the comparison.
x_{i} : difference between the mass determined by laboratory i, x_{(rep)i}, and that determined by the Pilot laboratory.

Three sets of mass standards, designated as CA, CB and CC, were circulated.
For each set of mass standards the Pilot Laboratory, PTB, carried out two measurements: the first one before the circulation and the second one after the circulation, as indicated respectively by (1) and (2).
x_{i} : difference between the mass determined by laboratory i, x_{(rep)i}, and that determined by the Pilot Laboratory.
The Pilot's mass value is the average of the two results obtained before and after the circulation.
