This workshop on uncertainty estimation will describe the statistical framework and methods needed to develop uncertainty statements based on the “ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement”. Methods for uncertainty estimation will be illustrated with many practical examples form different metrological areas. The workshop will also include hands-on examples to be analyzed by the participants. The hands-on examples will be done using propagation of uncertainty formulas, the Kragten spreadsheet, an easy-to-use computational tool for propagation of uncertainty, and other open-source uncertainty calculators.
The seminar will begin at 8:00 am Monday, March 14th, 2011 and end 5:00 pm Wednesday, March 16th, 2011.
