May 21-22, 2014
In today’s business climate, it is important for the laboratory to be efficient in its operations including making continual process improvements in the calibration and testing environment. The decision making process in making measurements, interpreting specifications, assigning calibration intervals requires use of statistical tools such as Statistical Process Control (SPC), False Accept Risk, Hypothesis Testing and others. Measurements made today are more precise and accurate and one cannot make a “decision on a hunch” as in the past. The use of industry proven tools helps establish a laboratory’s reputation in providing the correct solutions to its customers.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
This workshop is designed to assist laboratory staff in fully meeting the criteria of Handbook 143. It is especially useful for new laboratory staff or where previous non conformities have been identified through annual reviews or for newer staff who would benefit from organized/structured training on these topics (versus on-the-job transfer of information from an experienced metrologist to a newer one). Workshop participants will have the opportunity to apply workshop concepts on their own laboratory documents to develop a complete Recognition submission. Preparation for Accreditation will also be covered since the criteria for Recognition and Accreditation are identical.
