Testing of performance pertains to evaluation of the potential and actual capabilities of a system to satisfy the expectations of the designer and the users via exploration of its functioning. This includes determining how well the system performs its declared "job," how efficiently and effectively it does so, how robust it is, and so forth. The "job" and expected performance must therefore be defined at the outset. Efficiency is defined as how well the system does things right, effectiveness is defined as how well the system does the right thing, and robustness is defined as "the degree to which a system can function correctly in the presence of invalid inputs or stressful environmental conditions." [Finklestein, 00] Furthermore, the tests under consideration are not meant to be broad-based general evaluations of the system's knowledge or the full spectrum of its capabilities. In particular, we are not striving to ascertain whether a system has common-sense generic knowledge applicable to general-purpose problem solving. The system being evaluated has a given sphere of responsibility and known abilities and tasks that it is able to undertake under its specifications. Comments regarding the testing of intelligent versus non-intelligent systems are not meant to underestimate the difficulty of testing non-intelligent systems. Testing robustness, efficiency, and even functionality of non-intelligent software systems is difficult enough, e.g., see [Mukherjee 97]. Since the software execution can follow a myriad of combinations of paths through the code, it is impossible, in typical practice to exhaustively test all the possible combinations. In non-deterministic real-time systems, the problem is compounded by the uncertainty in the execution times of various processes, the sequence of events, asynchronous interrupts, etc [Butler, 93]. In general, the evaluation of intelligent systems (IS's) is broader than testing of non-intelligent systems (NIS)

Checking the net contents of packaged goods by Linda Crown( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook has been prepared as a procedural guide for the compliance testing of net contents statements on packaged goods. Compliance testing of packaged goods is the determination of the conformance results of the packaging, distribution, and retailing process (the packages) to specific legal requirements for net content declarations. This handbook has been developed primarily for the use of government officials; however, it should also be useful to commercial and industrial establishments in the areas of packaging, distribution, and sale of commodities. In conducting compliance testing, the conversion of quantity values from one measuring system to another (e.g., from the metric system to the avoirdupois system) should be handled with careful regard to the implied correspondence between accuracy of the data and the number of digits displayed. In all conversion, the number of significant digits retained should ensure that accuracy is neither sacrificed nor exaggerated. For this edition of Handbook 133, all dimensions for test procedures, devices, or environments have been rounded to two significant digits (e.g., 2.5 cm to 1.0 in) or to a precision level applicable to the test equipment (e.g., 200 kPa for 25 psi and 35 MPs for 5000 psi)

This symposium was a dedication to John L Hall, who was recently awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, (report below). The symposium was a celebration of his striking career in physics and his impressive record of achievements. Papers included in this volume offer brief and personal glimpses of some of his achievements, the research he inspired, and the great friendships he has built. Nobel Prize Report:. John L Hall, a Scientist Emeritus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology and a Fellow of JILA (joint institute of NIST and University of Colorado) has been awarded the 2005 Nobel
Best practices in assessment of research and development organizations by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)--recognizing that information and insights gained through continual examination of practices for organizational assessment are useful for decision makers at organizations across the deferral, industrial, academic, and national laboratory sectors--recently requested that the National Research Council (NRC) organize a panel to review best practices in assessment of research and development (R & D) organizations. In response, the NRC established the Panel for Review of Best Practices in Assessment of Research and Development Organizations. The panel was charged to consider means of assessing the following in a manner that satisfies the requirements of NIST to perform effective assessments but also identifies assessment methods that can be applied selectively to other R & D organizations. These methods include: technical merit and quality of the science and engineering work, the adequacy of the resources available to support high-quality work, the effectiveness of the agency's delivery of the services and products required to fulfill its goals, the degree to which the agency's current and planned R & D portfolio supports its mission, as well as the agency's flexibility to respond to changing economic, political, social and technological contexts. As one means of data gathering, among others that the panel is performing toward development of a final report of its findings, the panel organized a planning committee for a workshop on best practices in assessment of R & D organizations. Best Practices in Assessment of Research and Development Organizations: Summary of a Workshop reviews the workshop conducted at the Keck Center of the National Academies in Washington, D.C., on March 19, 2012"--Publisher's description
