Additional Comments: CNCL NO S/S
The major purpose of this handbook is to provide guidance to laboratory personnel in carrying out some of the basic tests in FED-STD-191 used in the acceptance of textiles procured by the Government.
This handbook calls attention to certain testing considerations which must be observed so that work being performed in the laboratory will provide consistent and accurate results. It also indicates why certain statements have been put into the test methods; what are some of the things to watch for prior to, during and after a test; how equipment and operation performances can be checked; and why measurement of variation is important.
Supplements 1 and 2 are intended to provide background information and instruction on the statistical analysis of laboratory data and the preparation and use of control charts.
