This 2 hour webinar provides a very basic introduction to uncertainty calculations and reporting using the 8-step process published in NIST SOP 29 (NISTIR 6969), beginning with some definitions and concepts from the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) with simple calculations.
NOTE: The content is similar to what is covered in the Fundamentals of Metrology seminar and is a useful pre-cursor or review for content covered during the course and will include calculations and a short application quiz. The session will end with an optional 30 minute session for Questions and Answers.
At the end of this session, using SOP 29, and course notes, participants will be able to:
There are no prerequisites for this webinar. Knowledge of basic mathematics and statistics is expected.
Read NISTIR 6969, SOP 29.
