  • Patent number: 6560562
    Abstract: A method of estimating the precision of an apparatus that generates a continuous stream of information. The method comprises repeated resampling of the dataset defined by the data stream for a selected time interval, or repeated sampling of a theoretical distribution fitted to a dataset defined by the data stream for a selected interval, calculating the sample estimate of the population mean for each resample, calculating the index of precision from the series of the population means thus obtained for evaluation against a benchmark such as a standard value, a specification or a contract requirement. Calculations can be done by a microprocessor and microprocessor instructions internal to the instrument or by a microprocessor and microprocessor instructions external to the instruments.
