Abstract:

Managers use analytical laboratories to provide them with measurement based information. All measurements have measurement error. Sources and types of measurement error influence the generation, interpretation, and regulatory uses of laboratory data. The successful manager intuitively understands analytical data and measurement error. This paper offers examples using visual models to reinforce that intuitive understanding and provides a concept based tool not found in traditional texts on either statistics or data interpretation.
