Fundamentals of Uncertainty Analysis

April 28-30, 2015 in Gaithersburg, MD

This short course covers many aspects of the propagation of uncertainty using the methods outlined in the JCGM Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement. Exercises and hands-on applications will use functions for uncertainty analysis from the free software package, metRology, written for the open-source R statistical computing environment. The functions will be accessed via an Excel graphical user interface that is available as a free add-in.

A listing of short courses given in the recent past by the Statistical Engineering Division for NIST staff members can be accessed here.
