[NMusers] 3Rs: Reproducibility, Replicability and Repeatability

Dear NONMEM Users

 

Does anyone have a clear view on the semantic distinctions between the terms
'reproducibility', 'replicability', and 'repeatability'? There are, surely,
different sources of data variation in experiments that might, on the face
of it, be identical. However, I have the impression that these terms are
being used more often than before, and in a manner that suggests their
meanings are transparent and unambiguous. Is there really a consensus out
there about what specifically these terms refer to, and is that consensus
the same in different scientific disciplines?

 

Gavin
