Practical Course & Guidelines On Uncertainty Of Measurement

Practical Course & Guideline on Uncertainty of Measurement

Duration – 15-days training

In this program the basics of statistics associated with UoM calculations are explained in an easy and practical way to those who are not exposed to it. The program explains not only how to do calculation but also covers why to do it in a manner prescribed in GUM document. It explains tricky question viz why repeatability standard deviation is divided by √n? What exactly is the physical meaning (practical day to day example) of Rectangular, Triangular and U- shaped distribution?, basis of choosing  a particular distribution for a particular factor? and How divisor 2√3, 2√6, 2√2 came from?, the concept and meaning of Degree of Freedom in practical sense?, how & why to apply corrected k value in case of sample (from students t table)?, How the whole calculation of UoM can be carried out in MS excel spreadsheet in a very simplified way? etc.
