Course Description

Course Outline






Measurement Decision Risk Analysis (3 days) Live Webinar - Software Included!


$1,595 per Student


This 3-day webinar provides a conceptual background in measurement decision risk analysis methods and techniques documented in NASA Reference Publication 1342, Metrology - Calibration and Measurement Processes Guidelines.  Topics include achieving accuracy ratios and other quality requirements through the analysis and management of false accept and false reject risks, establishing and using tolerance guardbands, and interpreting and reporting measurement decision risk.  Concepts and principles are reinforced through hands-on use of ISG's AccuracyRatio software.


This course is intended for engineers, scientists and other technical personnel involved in research and development, product reliability and quality assurance, and calibration laboratory assessment.  This course is also designed for personnel responsible for implementing risk analysis methods and procedures for NCSL Z540-1 or NCSLI Z540.3 compliance.


Dr. Howard Castrup has B.S. and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering.  He has been developing advanced measurement science techniques and methods for over forty years, is one of the founders of uncertainty growth modeling, the originator of statistical measurement process control (SMPC), a major contributor to NASA Reference Publication 1342, NASA HNBK-8739-19 and NCSLI Recommended Practices on Calibration Intervals (RP-1), Measurement Uncertainty (RP-12) and Measurement Decision Risk Analysis (RP-18).  Prior to founding Integrated Sciences Group, Dr. Castrup worked as a Microwave Electronics Instructor, an RF and Microwave Metrology Engineer, a Sr. Statistician, Sr. Systems Analyst, and Project Manager.  Dr. Castrup is a member of IEEE, Sigma Pi Sigma, AIP, AAPT, and is the chairman of the NCSLI RP-18 and RP-19 Committees. He has published numerous technical papers and articles on uncertainty analysis, measurement decision risk analysis, statistical process control, and calibration interval analysis.

Ms. Suzanne Castrup has B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and has over thirty five years of hands-on experience in calibration and testing, both in the research and production environments. She has tested and evaluated numerous instruments and systems for measuring temperature, pressure, flow rate, mass and heat transfer rate in the petroleum industry and has considerable expertise interpreting and evaluating performance specifications for a wide variety of sensors, transducers and signal conditioners.  Ms. Castrup is a member of ASME, ISA and SPE and is chair of the NCSLI  Uncertainty Analysis (RP-12) and Equipment Specifications (RP-5) Committees and has served as chair of the NCSLI Petroleum Industry Metrology Committee (1990 through 1991). She has published numerous technical papers and holds several U.S. Patents relating to petroleum measurements and thermal recovery processes. Click Here for a list of professional accomplishments.


Howard and Suzanne are recipients of the 2005 NCSLI Education and Training Award. This prestigious award is second only to the William A. Wildhack Award and is given to an individual or group of individuals for outstanding contributions to the field of metrology education and training.
