Science - Mathematics & Statistics / prepackages
 English term or phrase: apparent variation The square of the standard deviation, the variance (denoted by 2, or where an estimated value is concerned, by s2) is of particular importance, especially when variation may arise from a number of contributory sources. Such components of variation may be identified with particular features of the process or measurement system under consideration. Thus, in determining prepackaged quantities, the ***apparent variation*** may comprise the real prepackage-to-prepackage variation in quantities, the variation in tare weights of containers, and errors in the measurement system. Jen pro upřesnění, nepoužívám "odchylka", jelikož to je už vyhrazeno pro standard deviation = směrodatná odchylka a variance je rozptyl - tedy druhá mocnina směrodatné odchylky dále: variační koeficient (coefficient of variation) – směrodatná odchylka dělená střední hodnotou Nevím, zda používat variabilita? V textu to totiž už je obsaženo i jako "variability": Generally, this proportion is controlled indirectly by monitoring the variability of the prepackaged quantities so that where variability is a problem, sufficient allowance is provided to limit the proportion of non-standard items.

celková variace

Explanation:
"Apparent variation" isn't really a statistical term. What it means in the source text is actually "total variation" and I suggest translating it as that. Otherwise you could use "zjevné variace" I suppose.

 Asker: Thanks, actually, I have not really found "variace procesu" within the context of quality control and statistics in general. It is rather referred to as "variabilita procesu" or "kolísání" as Pavel answers.

shledaná nekonzistence

Explanation:
... trochu od lesa, aby se nepletla terminologie.
Nebo třeba nesoustavnost, aby to bylo zcela necizácky. (Když už je kolísání navrženo).

Hlavně bych navrhoval obezřetnost u slova apparent, což může být zjevný, shledaný, či zdánlivý/domnělý ... mně v tomto kontextu nejvíc sedí apparent ve smyslu "as found to be".
