33. The ghost in the machine: Don't let it haunt your software performance measurements
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1830
Topic: Information Technology
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Vreda Pieterse, David W Flater
Abstract: This paper describes pitfalls, issues, and methodology for measuring software performance. Ideally, measurement should be performed and reported in such a way that others will be able to reproduce the results in order to confirm their validity. W ...

34. Exploring the Methodology and Utility of Standardized Latent Fingerprint Matcher Scoring
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7992
Topic: Information Technology
Published: 4/24/2014
Authors: Vladimir N Dvornychenko, George W Quinn
Abstract: Explores methods for defining a standardized matcher score for Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS). A standardized score facilitates evaluating candidate lists from AFIS, and decreases the burden on the human expert. Such scoring will ...

36. Powder Bed Fusion Machine Performance Testing
Topic: Information Technology
Published: 4/16/2014
Authors: Shawn P Moylan, Joseph Drescher, M. Alkan Donmez
Abstract: Unlike conventional machining where there is a near 1:1 correspondence of machine performance to the geometry of the workpiece, the accuracy of the machine components is only one of the contributors to the quality of a finished AM part. Rather, ther ...
