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) and includes some 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 includes calculations and an integrated application quiz. The session ends 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 and must be used for successful completion.
Read NISTIR 6969, SOP 29
Must be completed prior to webinar.
Submit Student Notes (Highlights, Applications, and Application Quiz).
Post-work must be submitted to instructors by Thursday, May 27, 2021.
Successful Completion includes completing pre- and post-work assignments, full attendance and participation in the session activities and discussion, including the integrated quiz/calculations.
Laboratory metrology staff and administrators who are new to uncertainty calculations or who would like to review the 8-step process of SOP 29. The session would also be useful for metrology staff who will be conducting on-the-job-training for new staff members.
The current fee for webinars is $289 and confirmed participants will be provided payment instructions. Registration fee payment is due by May 7, 2021. Registration fees for State weights and measures metrologists are funded by NIST OWM.
