Measurement Uncertainty

is designed for the practitioner in the laboratory who determines the results and whose task is a statement about the measurement uncertainty. Specific mathematic knowledge is not required.

It shall be shown, that:

  1. a calculation is possible and meaningful
  2. an expert estimation of the measurement uncertainty is possible and meaningful


Additionally computation models of current test standards will become represented step for step and all methods will be discussed on the basis examples from laboratory practice. Priority is given to a pragmatic, practice-oriented approach. Detailed mathematical derivatives are kept disregarded. Concrete work tools are presented.

The Workshop documents contain all relevant mathematical steps with example calculations.The emphasis of the second Workshop day lies in the independent conversion of the models shown in the individual laboratory situation.
