Approximately equal probes

Table of Contents

This testmethod checks whether two or more probes are approximately equal. This means, that the testmethod first builds the arithmetic average of all probe-values before it checks whether the probe-values are in between a defined percentage around the arithmetic average.

Prerequisites

  • There are at least two probes needed.
  • The probes must have the same shape. Use an extraction-method to shape the data.

Parameters

Max. DeviationThe maximum allowed deviation between the probes (positive and negative around the arithmetic average of the probes). If the deviation is above that level, the testcase fails.

Results

SuccessAll probe-values must be within the max. deviation defined.
FailedAt least one probe-value is outside the defined range.
