  • Key comparison CCM.P-K6

The key comparison reference value, xR, is calculated as the median of the participants' values. The standard uncertainty of the key comparison reference value, uR, is calculated by the formula uR = 1.858 MAD / (n - 1)1/2, where MAD is the median of absolute deviations from the median, and n is the number of participants contributing to the reference value.

xR = 335.744 4 mm2
uR = 0.000 7 mm2

The degree of equivalence of laboratory i with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms expressed in mm2:
Di = (xi - xR) and Ui = 2(ui2 + uR2)1/2, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2).
The degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j is given by a pair of terms expressed in mm2:
Dij = Di - Dj = (xi - xj) and Uij = 2(ui2 + uj2)1/2, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2).

Linking EURAMET.M.P-K8 to CCM.P-K2

PTB and INRiM provides the link between key comparisons CCM.P-K2 and EURAMET.M.P-K8, having participated in both comparisons. The linkage process is described in Section 11 of the EURAMET.M.P-K8 Final Report.

The degrees of equivalence of the laboratories having participated in EURAMET.M.P-K4.2010, with respect to the CCM.P-K2 key comparison reference value, are expressed in Pa, and therefore are shown on a different graph from the one for the participants in CCM.P-K2.

The key comparison reference value, xR, is calculated as the median of the participants' values. The standard uncertainty of the key comparison reference value, uR, is calculated by the formula uR = 1.858 MAD / (n - 1)1/2, where MAD is the median of absolute deviations from the median, and n is the number of participants contributing to the reference value.

                                                xR = 335.744 0 mm2
                                                uR = 0.000 8 mm2

The degree of equivalence of laboratory i with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms expressed in mm2:

Di = (xi - xR) and Ui = 2(ui2 + uR2 + uT2)1/2, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2). uT is the uncertainty due to the instability of the transfer standard: uT = 0.002 5 mm2 (see page 15 of the Final Report).

The degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j is given by a pair of terms expressed in mm2Dij = Di - Dj = (xi - xj) and Uij = 2(ui2 + uj2 + 2uT2)1/2, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2). Effects of correlation should be taken into consideration.
