Course Description

This course will provide introductory background on uncertainty analysis in measurement and calibration. It will cover important element in evaluating uncertainty, the sources of uncertainty in measurement, review of common statistical distributions, and step by step guide in evaluation of measurement uncertainty. In addition, it provides participants with the awareness and understanding of what a measurement and calibration system constitutes. Finally, it discusses the topic of calibration of digital multimeter (DMM).
