Part 1 - Facts and Fallacies

Part 1 addresses current facts and fictions relating to uncertainty analysis, risk analysis, interval analysis and SPC for measurement processes.

 
 

Part 2 - Estimating Measurement Uncertainty

This part of the handbook discusses various motivations for estimating measurement uncertainty.  Methods for estimating uncertainty are described and a systematic procedure for analyzing measurement uncertainty is presented.  Part 2 concludes with a discussion of the various uses for uncertainty estimates.   Subtopics are listed below.

 
 

Why Estimate Uncertainty?

Uncertainty Analysis Fundamentals

Estimating Uncertainty

Multivariate Uncertainty Analysis

   Expanded Uncertainty

   Calibration Scenarios

   Reporting Uncertainty

   Using Uncertainty Estimates

 
 

Part 3 - Analyzing Measurement Decision Risk

Part 3 of the handbook discusses how we use uncertainty estimates, along with other information to develop test and calibration quality metrics that can be useful in making decisions.  Chief among these metrics are false accept and false reject risk. Subtopics are listed below.

 
 

Preliminaries

Process Level Method

Bench Level Methods

  Confidence Level Method

  The 4:1 Alternative

 
 

Part 4 - Analyzing Calibration Intervals

This part of the handbook provides an overview of concepts and methods for estimating and adjusting intervals for measurement and test equipment (MTE).

 
 

Periodic Calibration

The Goal of Interval Analysis

The Reliability Target

   Reliability Modeling   

   Establishing or Adjusting Intervals

   Statistical Interval Testing

 
 

Part 5 - Controlling Measurement Processes

Part 5 of the handbook discusses the use of statistical process control (SPC) to control measurement processes.

 
 

Preliminaries

Measurement Process SPC

  Control Charts

 
 

Part 6 - Interpreting and Using Equipment Specifications

Part 6 of the handbook discusses how manufacturer specifications are obtained, interpreted and used to assess MTE performance and reliability.  Recommended practices are presented and illustrative examples are given for combining specifications.

 
 

Measuring and Test Equipment

Performance Characteristics

Obtaining Specifications

Interpreting Specifications

Applying Specifications
