Calibration uncertainty for non-mathematicians


This paper discusses the basics of uncertainty in measurement and calibration. The paper is designed for people who are not mathematicians or metrology experts, but rather to people who are planning and making the practical measurements and calibrations in industrial applications.

Being aware of the uncertainty related to the measurement is a very fundamental concept and you should not really make any measurements unless you are aware of the related uncertainty.
