Error model to determine the reliability of parametric measurements
No exact resolution can be assigned to technical parametric measurements owing to their function principle. However, it is often inevitable to analyse the precision of these measurements, e.g. for comparison of methods or for choosing proper measurement parameters. This paper presents a calculation algorithm based on likelihood-theory where both the regular and the random errors will be taken into account to determine the confidence intervals. Thus, the reliability of parametric measurements can be characterized by a single quantity.
