- Be proficient in spreadsheet use; and
- Be working in a testing laboratory with test methods requiring measurement uncertainty estimates.
After successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:
1. Discuss the concepts within the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty of Measurement (The GUM);
2. List and define the contributors for testing laboratory Type ‘A’ and Type ‘B’ measurement uncertainty distributions;
3. Determine how contributors are considered for inclusion in the uncertainty budget; and
4. Build a basic Test Measurement Uncertainty Budget.
The participant will need a laptop computer (PC or MAC) with Microsoft Excel or similar spreadsheet installed. Please note that the tablet and smart phone versions of Excel and other spreadsheets do not have the full functionality of the PC versions and the participant may not be able to utilize all the power of the spreadsheet covered during the training.
