Calculates two measures (MAC & SDI) for comparing M#s in two different Data Blocks.
The Modal Assurance Criterion (MAC ) and the Shape Difference Indicator (SDI ) are calculated between each sample in one Data Block and the same sample in a second Data Block.
The results are saved as two M#s in a new Data Block.
MAC is a measure of the co-linearity of two shapes. Two shapes are co-linear if they "lie on the same straight line".
This command calculates the MAC between the ODS (M# values) at a sample in one Data Block with the ODS (M# values) at the same sample in a second Data Block.
MAC has values between 0 & 1
If MAC = 1, the ODS in one Data Block is co-linear with the ODS at the same sample in the other Data Block
If MAC < 1, the ODS in one Data Block is different from the ODS at the same sample in the other Data Block
SDI is a measure of the difference between two shapes.
This command calculates the SDI between the ODS (M# values) at a sample in one Data Block with the ODS (M# values) at the same sample in a second Data Block.
SDI has values between 0 & 1
If SDI = 1, the ODS in one Data Block is the same as the ODS at the same sample in the other Data Block
If SDI < 1, the ODS in one Data Block is different from the ODS at the same sample in the other Data Block
