Oct 8-9, 2015 Measurement Uncertainty Advanced Topics – Frederick MD

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

Oct 20-21 Measurement Uncertainty (per ILAC P14 Guidelines) – Boca Raton FL

Hosted by WorkPlace Training. This 2-day workshop introduces basic measurement uncertainty and traceability concepts. The concepts taught are then put in practice by developing sample measurement uncertainty budgets. Attendees are encouraged to work their sample uncertainty budgets with instructor input. Hands-on development of the uncertainty budget helps in the comprehension process. Excel spreadsheets are utilized for developing measurement uncertainty budgets. See upcoming workshops: http://www.wptraining.com/3_workshops.html

Oct 4-7 Analytical Metrology Training – York, PA

J.M. Ingram & Associates will once again offer workshops on Measurement Uncertainty and other Analytical Metrology topics. The first of a series of classes will be held 4-7 October, 2015 (Mon – Thurs). Morehouse Instrument Company has generously agreed to host the workshop at their facility in York, Pennsylvania.

The first workshop on Analytical Metrology, for those with some knowledge of measurement uncertainty, will include Risk Analysis and Guard Banding in addition to Measurement Uncertainty Analysis. The workshop is designed for the engineer, journeyman technician, quality manager, technical manager or anyone needing the tools to develop their own budgets, manage their decision risks and develop mitigation strategies for measurements to meet the requirements set out in ANSI/NCSL Z540.3.

Sep 21-22 Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty – Dallas, TX

The course is suitable for all personnel of both calibration and testing laboratories. Every effort is made to eliminate unnecessary complications, to apply The Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) at its simplest level and to take away the mystery associated with measurement uncertainty. Participants who have never developed uncertainty budgets usually develop the required skills to understand and modify existing budgets, as well as to develop basic budgets from scratch. Others who seek explanations of GUM complexities obtain clarifications expressed in simple terms. Measurement uncertainty problems are solved by brainstorming methods so as to generate interaction by all participants.
