Beamex-WP-calibration-uncertainty-1500px-v1.jpg

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

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