Abstract:

The techniques of sampling theory are applied to measure the performance of the plant of a common-user communication system. Based on a range of expected values of p probability of call failure, appropriate values are derived for n the sample size, and the rationale behind the selection of a confidence level is explained. Where sampling results indicate an identifiable cause of ineffective calls, remedial engineering work can be undertaken. By this process system performance can be improved until no readily identifiable cause of failure can be found. The work in this report was done in order to provide input to Annex H of the Overseas AUTOVON Master Test Plan.
