|Title:||The Development and Production of NIST Standard Reference Materials to Support Metrology and Traceability for the Forensic Science Community|
|Abstract:||The process for making a NIST Standard Reference Material involves a program of ongoing research followed by specific development and production steps. The decision to address a measurement problem involves consideration of the size of the intended user community, the match to NIST s mission, and the economics of recovering production costs. We describe these considerations here as they apply to all SRM projects. A specific example related to the application of an SRM to forensic science is also described; namely, the development of a new SRM for calibrating systems that measure and match bullet marking signatures.|
