Measurement, as a method to quantitatively compare a physical size with that of a reference object, is an important process in many applications - from commodity trading to science and research. Measurements are the basis of far-reaching decisions. The measurement is only truly possible and complete, however, if the inherent measurement uncertainties can also be correctly assessed.
In the seminar "Practical Evaluation of Measurement Uncertainty", you learn how to consistently and reproducibly evaluate measurement uncertainty according to the ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM), which is also known as the pre-standard DIN V ENV 13005 in German-speaking regions. After completing the seminar, you will be familiar with the relevant documents on measurements and calibrations and will be able to determine measurement uncertainty to perform measurement tasks.
You learn the basic principles of evaluating measurement uncertainty according to the current ISO Guides.
- Basic concepts of measurement
- Introduction to the topic measurement uncertainty
- Determination of measurement uncertainty using the GUM method
- In-depth information about the GUM method
- Computational evaluation of measurement uncertainty
- Practical examples
The seminar is useful as an entry or a refreser for people who are responsible for planning and carrying out measurements as well as processing and interpretating the results of measurements:
- Research institutions and development departments
- Production and quality managment
- Testing and calibration laboratories
- Expert assessment
In particular, the following people may benefit from the seminar:
- measurement engineers,
- quality managers who set and judge the measurement uncertainty according to the accepted standards and
- researchers who need to evaluate measurement uncertainties that occur in their experimental studies.
