Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty

Training Course

About the Course

Measurement is fundamental to the control of quality, efficiency and safety. This one-day course is designed to impart a basic understanding of measurement uncertainty. Delegates will learn about the impact of uncertainty in industry, to identify important sources of uncertainty in measurement systems and receive practical guidance on the design of measurement techniques to minimise uncertainty. This course is a prerequisite for TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory’s Practical Applications of Measurement Uncertainty Training Course.

Introduction & Objectives

Measurement is fundamental to the control of quality, efficiency and safety. It is vital that all those using industrial measurement recognise that measurement is not an exact science. Understanding the magnitude of the uncertainty associated with any measurement is the first step to improving accuracy. An ability to identify the key issues affecting accuracy is the crucial step in ensuring that limited resources are correctly targeted in any drive to improve accuracy.

This course will introduce delegates to the techniques required to identify what affects measurements and by how much. By ranking the effects, delegates will be able to guard against invalid conclusions and ensure that the key measurements are targeted for investment in new instrumentation.

The course is designed to impart a basic understanding of measurement uncertainty. Delegates will learn the appreciation of the impact of measurement uncertainty within the industry, to identify the important sources of uncertainty in measurement systems and receive practical guidance on the design of measurement techniques for improved uncertainty.

This course is a prerequisite for TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory’s Practical Applications of Measurement Uncertainty course which expands delegates knowledge using examples tailored to the oil and gas sector to reinforce the basic principles introduced in this course.

Who should attend?
