A virtual measurement is a quantitative result and its uncertainty, obtained primarily by computer simulation or computer-assisted measurements. Examples of virtual measurements include computational models of physical systems and visualizations of the results. The Virtual Measurement Systems Program introduces metrology constructs - standard reference computations, uncertainty quantification, and traceability - into scientific computation and computer-assisted measurement technologies. As with physical measurement systems, development of a virtual metrology infrastructure will result in predictive computing with quantified reliability. In turn, this will enable improved decision making based on results of computer simulations.
Virtual Measurement System projects are organized along two principal research areas.
