Introduction to Uncertainty Analysis (3 days) - Software Included!


$1,395 per Student


This 3-day course provides a straightforward and easy-to-understand introduction to the principles of measurement uncertainty analysis as found in the ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (the GUM). Type A and Type B methods of estimating measurement process uncertainties are discussed and multivariate analysis is outlined.


This course is designed for calibration managers, supervisors and technical personnel responsible for implementing uncertainty analysis methods and procedures for laboratory accreditation and ISO 17025 compliance.  Instruction involves minimal statistics with hands-on use of ISG’s Uncertainty Sidekick Pro software to illustrate concepts for a variety of direct and multivariate measurement scenarios. The role that uncertainty estimates play in developing laboratory capability statements and assessing measurement decision risk is also discussed.

Measurement Uncertainty Analysis (5 days) Live Webinar  - Software Included!


$1,995 per Student


This 5-day uncertainty analysis webinar is intended for engineers, scientists and other technical personnel responsible for designing, testing, calibrating, installing or maintaining measurement equipment and monitoring systems.  This course is also beneficial for research and development personnel and quality assurance engineers in all fields of science and technology.


This course provides a comprehensive presentation of the principles of measurement uncertainty analysis for direct and multivariate measurements and measurement systems found in the GUM, published papers and current research.  Instruction includes advanced measurement uncertainty analysis topics that extend these methods and concepts.  Hands-on analyses using ISG's UncertaintyAnalyzer software provide practical application of important concepts to the development of uncertainty estimates for direct measurements, multivariate measurements and measurement systems.  Using uncertainty estimates to establish tolerance limits, analyze measurement decision risk, perform statistical tests and establish calibration intervals for equipment parameters is also discussed.


Dr. Howard Castrup has B.S. and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering.  He has been developing advanced measurement science techniques and methods for over thirty five 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, the NCSLI Recommended Practice on Calibration Intervals (RP-1) and NASA HNBK-8739-19.  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.
