Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty

Training Course

Training Course

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.
