Patient discussion about repeatability

Q. Now my question is: what kind of repetitive symptoms should I look for? I read the previous question about the early autism symptoms of a child. It is very beneficial. Now my question is: what kind of repetitive symptoms should I look for?

A. It depends upon your child’s health. Repetitive symptoms will vary from child to child but they will begin to show up at a very young age. Look for things such as stacking of items or lining items up compulsively. They may also have repetitive body movements such as hand flapping or body rocking. In some cases, the child may even injure themselves on a regular basis such as by biting their skin. As with most things, each individual child will display repetitive symptoms in their own way.

For example, let's discuss a situation where the machine has a repeatability of four sigma at [+ or -]25 [micro]m, and is centered at a nominal of 0.000 (Figure 3).
* The flow repeatability error contributed by an inaccurate analog pressure transmitter or transducer can be much greater than the error from the ultrasonic or turbine meter itself.
Further studies are needed to compare the repeatability of measurements in very severe dry eye patients.
(ii) Repeatability. PCA was carried out on the dataset consisting of the 9 experiments of the design, each described by the CV% of each peak area.
To estimate the repeatability coefficient by the method of analysis of variance (ANOVA), the statistical model with two factors of variation was used:
Repeatability of maximum numbers of antral follicles was very high in follicular waves of same (0.83) and different (0.85) estrous cycles.
One way of quantifying between-individual variation in a phenotypic trait while taking within-individual variation into account is to use the quantitative genetic concept of repeatability (Falconer and Mackay, 1981; Boake, 1989).
When squeegee angle is set at a range between 40[degrees] and 45[degrees] the volume of the paste deposited is increased, but the repeatability decreases.
With the introduction of the TS 740 infrared touch probe, Heidenhain offers machine tool users the opportunity to perform measuring tasks that require an especially high probing accuracy and repeatability. Boasting a probing accuracy of [less than or equal to] [+ or -] 1 [micro]m and a repeatability factor of 2 [sigma] [less than or equal to] 0.25 [micro]m, the TS 740 workpiece touch probe is one of the most accurate 3D touch probes for machine tools in the market today.
From the automotive industry to the university research laboratory, this instrument is said to address the need for small scale testing with excellent waveform repeatability, according to the company.
Robots' durability, high repeatability and ability to instantly communicate with other functions in the system allow them to improve quality, reduce operation times and keep metalcasting facilities on pace to achieve production goals.
