A Bayesian Approach to Calibration Intervals and Properly Calibrated Tolerance Intervals

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]

Measuring devices often measure a quantity of interest indirectly, requiring a calibration that relates an observed measurement to the true quantity. A Bayesian approach to inference is considered in which there is a calibration relationship between measured and true quantities of interest. This approach easily handles a general calibration relationship, such as a nonlinear one, with nonnormal errors. Three examples are presented and implemented using WinBUGS software.
