13 STATISTICAL ANALYSIS Mann-Whitney Wilcoxon Method of Data Comparison

14 CONCLUSION &RECOMMENDATION The innovative grind and most recently the ultimate grind configurations are widely accepted, sought after and used because of excellent acoustic properties. To a 95% confidence level, Innovative/ Ultimate grind line and triple laser data are different The different lasers may not be used interchangeably because of sensitive textures Use line laser for acceptance testing of all Innovative grinds.
