Standard Guide for Using Existing Practices in Developing and Writing Test Methods
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
1.1 This guide is intended to assist task groups in the preparation of a test method. It can help the task group use existing statistically related ASTM practices more effectively during the development and writing of the test method.
1.2 Some of the essential activities that should occur during the development of a new test method are not in existing or proposed practices under the jurisdiction of ASTM Subcommittee D13.93 on Statistics. This guide includes a brief explanation of how such activities should be carried out.
1.3 This guide is applicable to properties that are evaluated by both parametric and nonparametric methods of estimation. The instructions on properties that are best evaluated by nonparametric methods are less complete than those for properties that are evaluated by parametric methods.
