1404   RATE statistical method is not fully defined and may lead to Interop issues

Created: 06 Jun 2015

Status: In Force (green)

Part: Part 7-4 (2010; Edition 2)


Page: 125

Clause: ClcMth


Category: Issue for edition 2 of this part


Following the latest TC57 WG10 Regina meeting, and the assessment of the requirement to support the coming 90-3 TR, it appears that the proposed RATE calculation method for statistics is possibly raising issues :
- Basically a measurement issued from a RATE calculation unit shall have a different unit than the original one (from xxx, to xxx/T)
- It may then raise additional interop issue because the same object from the same LN Class may be expressed with different units (said optional)


Depecrate RATE statistical method as [F(t+T) -F(t)] /T

Introduce a new statistical method DIFF expressing for a calculation interval T, the entity [F(t+T) -F(t)] (in the de facto same unit than the original entity).
Actually, because T is also readable, calculating the previous RATE is still possible by the client, from the DIFF result : RATE = DIFF/T

The enum value PREDICTION will also be deprecated. A more general concept of forecast modeling will be developed (probably in WG17).

The tissue will be changed to final proposal.

Correction: EnumVal=11 is already used. For ClcMth DIFF shall be EnumVal=13. 11 Jun 15 Discussion (red)
The issue is valid. Therefore the enum value RATE of ClcMth shall be set to deprecated in amendment 2.1.
Instead the method DIFF (as proposed) will be invited in the enum list of ClcMth with EnumVal=11 of part 7-4 amd 2.1.
