Measurement uncertainty is a way to be able to make the necessary decisions about the quality of measurements and calibrations. This is an intermediate level course for those who already have basic knowledge of measurement uncertainty and who want to extend their skills further.
When making a measurement uncertainty calculation, there are several common questions that arise, such as calculating sensitivity coefficients, significant differences between measurements, measurement results versus requirement limits, and more.
During these days, we go deeper into uncertainty analysis and statistical aids. We discuss and explain the most common problems and issues encountered in a measurement uncertainty calculation. These include overlaying of different distributions, Monte Carlo simulation, analysis of situations when contributions are correlated and where and how to find information about the different input measurement uncertainty contributions.
The course is given in Swedish, but can be ordered in English as customized course at the clients premises.
For those of you who work with measurements, analysis or calibration of measuring instruments and have basic knowledge of measurement uncertainty but want to learn more.
We will show different software available to perform measurement safety calculations. A large part of the course content consists of work with examples in smaller groups. The exercises deal with the different elements that are part of an uncertainty calculation.
