Interval Analysis Concepts and Methods (2 days)
tutorial provides an overview of calibration interval analysis
concepts and methods
documented in NCSL Recommended Practice RP-1, Establishment and
Adjustment of Calibration Intervals and
NASA Reference Publication 1342,
Metrology - Calibration and Measurement Processes Guidelines.
Students will be introduced to risk analysis concepts, measurement
reliability modeling methods, statistical interval analysis
techniques, calibration interval objectives and potential ancillary
interval analysis benefits such as equipment outlier identification.
Concepts are illustrated using commercially available software and
This course is intended to provide quality and calibration managers,
systems analysts, equipment managers and metrology engineers with a
practical basis for selecting, developing, implementing and operating
a calibration interval analysis system.
