For detecting an outlier in a vector I have tested different well known outlier detection methods. Finally, I used combination of different methods and an agreement between those methods. Now, a person asks why did you choose this combination and algorithms!? You can reach different combinations and use other algorithms and they may yield better results. What should I answer? I cannot just say based on tests as there are many other algorithms that I haven't tested (cannot test all algorithms). It is not a logical response, I think.
I'm looking for tests to justify my selected methods and combination and say why I have selected these methods.
Please let me know your suggestions.
