This page provides an online calculator to a p-value for two-sample equivalency. Based on the qualification sample statistics and the equivalency sample statistics, this calculator computes the p-value. The basis of this method is the following paper. More details are given at the bottom of this page.

S. Kloppenborg, “Lot acceptance testing using sample mean and extremum with finite qualification samples,” Journal of Quality Technology, 2023. DOI: 10.1080/00224065.2022.2147884

Based on a user selected qualification sample statistics (\(\bar{x}_{qual}\), \(s_{qual}\), and \(n\)), equivalency sample statistics (\(x_{min\,equiv}\), \(\bar{x}_{equiv}\), and \(m\)), the following two statistics are computed:

\[ t_1 = \frac{\bar{x}_{qual} - x_{min\,equiv}}{s_{qual}} \\ t_2 = \frac{\bar{x}_{qual} - \bar{x}_{equiv}}{s_{qual}} \]

From these statistics, a p-Value is computed.
