Mathmet Measurement Uncertainty Training activity – Overview of courses, software, and classroom examples
Keywords:measurement uncertainty, training, Mathmet, overview, measurement uncertainty courses, classroom examples and software
A collaborative activity on “Measurement Uncertainty (MU) Training” under the auspices of the European Metrology Network for Mathematics and Statistics (Mathmet) is underway. This abstract reports on the progress to undertake surveys of existing training courses on MU, software for MU evaluation, and classroom examples to support the understanding of methods for MU evaluation. An appreciable number of training courses, software and examples have been identified and are currently under review. These tools and materials will be analysed and categorised according to their main features and characteristics. Special attention will be given to their adherence to the JCGM guidelines (i.e., JCGM 100:2008, JCGM 101:2008 and JCGM 102:2011). It is hoped that the knowledge assembled in this activity will help practitioners to make good choices about appropriate material to support their training needs, as well as help developers of training material to ensure good coverage of their training products and target them at user needs.
