Dear Helmut,

» What happens if we pre-specify the widened acceptance range and discover in the study that CVwR ≤30? Assess the study for the conventional AR of 80.00–125.00%? IMHO, that means we have a data-driven decision – which might be false and result in an inflated type I error.


» I performed simulations acc. to my understanding of the GL:


» CVwR = CVwT = 30%, balanced 4-period 2-sequence full replicate design (TRTR|RTRT), n = 40 (81% power for θ0 = 0.90), 106 studies with θ0 = 1.25: ~20.6% passed…

Confirmed! At least in magnitude.
My result: 20.46% passed.
Quick and dirty captured code from power.scABEL.sds.

Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge
in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people.
The specialist knows more and more about less and less
and finally knows everything about nothing.    Konrad Lorenz
