The cavity performance tests, that is, vertical test (V.T.) and cryomodule test (C.T.), in the cavity/cryomodule mass production for XFEL have been done since 2012 at DESY, and is still ongoing at present. At the comparatively initial stage of the mass production, the error estimation in the cavity performance tests was done for understanding how precisely those measurements are done at AMTF (Accelerator Module Test Facility). There are two parameters for the error estimation in V.T. One is the cable calibration parameter, and the other is the external Qvalue, which is related to the power emitted from cavity. The measurement precision in the external Qvalue depends on the measurement of coupling coefficient (β) strongly. Therefore, it is essential not to miss the β measurement for the precise measurement in V.T. On the other hand, as for C.T., the change of parameter (Kt), which is related to the evaluation of accelerating gradient, was used. As the result of the data analysis for Kt, the error was estimated to be 6%, and is related to the cavity performance degradation from V.T. to C.T. In this paper, the detailed data analysis and error estimation will be presented.
