A MATHMET Quality Management System for data, software, and guidelines
The European Metrology Network for Mathematics and Statistics (MATHMET) is creating a Quality Management System (QMS) to ensure that research outputs in the forms of data, software and guidelines are fit-for-purpose, achieve a sufficient level of quality, and are consistent with the aims of National Measurement Institutes to provide quality-assured and trusted outputs. The essential components of the QMS for all three forms of research output are discussed. On-line, interactive risk assessment tools that guide a user through the process of assigning an integrity level for the research outputs of data and software, are described. Examples of case studies that have been used to demonstrate the QMS are indicated.
