About the Webinar

This webinar will begin at 10 am ET and provide a simple overview on the common uses and fundamental assumptions behind Ordinary Linear Regression (OLR), followed by an explanation on why the ReXY-based technique in ASTM D6708 Practice for Statistical Assessment and Improvement of Expected Agreement Between Two Test Methods that Purport to Measure the Same Property of a Material should be used instead of OLR to develop correlation between two methods that claim to measure the same property. The D6708 process, inputs, outputs, and failure modes will be presented.

Who Should Attend

This webinar is intended for Process Analyzer and Control Engineers involved in or interested in developing a correlation between Field process analyzers and lab test methods.

How to Register

The fee is $150 per person. After registering, you will receive an email ten days prior to the webinar with information about how to access the webinar. In addition to the webinar, you'll get 7-day access to a recording of the session.
