The measured value you read becomes reliable only in combination with a correctly determined measurement uncertainty. 

In this seminar, you will learn all the necessary steps for evaluating and calculating a standardized statement of measurement uncertainty. 

The first and most challenging step consists of precisely analyzing the effects relevant to measurement uncertainty. These effects originate in the sensor system, the measuring amplifier and the measuring process itself. Once this is known, you will be able to calculate the measurement uncertainty correctly according to the relevant GUM guideline and state it accordingly.
