Seminar: The Practical Way to Determine Measurement Uncertainty (MU)

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. 

The topics are: 

  • Definition and meaning of measurement uncertainty
  • Determining the quantities that influence measurement uncertainty
  • Evaluating the influencing quantities
  • Method of calculating the measurement uncertainty
  • Standardized statement of the measurement uncertainty
  • Exercises and discussions based on real examples
  • Tips and tricks from practical experience for your practical applications
