Title: Measurement Uncertainty, CMMs, and Standards: Today and the Future
Published: January 01, 2005
Abstract: Over the past decade modern measurement uncertainty evaluation has evolved from an obscure art practiced at National Measurement Institutes (NMIs) to an increasingly intertwined aspect of industrial metrology.  This paper examines the progression of measurement uncertainty from the NMIs to the calibration laboratories and onto the shop floor.  National and international standards relevant to uncertainty considerations are described.
