A round-robin study usually attempts to have several laboratories measure identical materials by the methods used in each laboratory. Similarly, the methods usually are expected to produce comparable absolute errors if used properly. Round-robins then have the facility to detect gross errors in one operation vis-à-vis the mean and standard deviation of the remainder of the set.
