Guideline on measurement uncertainty in testing

A written practical guideline for the evaluation of measurement uncertainty in testing has been developed. The guideline is based on the standard documents "Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement" ("GUM"), ISO, 1993, and ISO 21748 "Guide to the use of repeatability, reproducibility and trueness estimates in measurement uncertainty estimation", ISO, 2002. The guide contains a summary of the general GUM method, hints on establishing model functions - a central concept in the GUM method, explanation and examples of the use of generic model functions relevant for electrical measurements, the use and limitations of empirical models and the statistical treatment of measurement data, descriptions of other tools such as translation of instrument specifications, use of calibration curves. Finally, the guide contains a few examples of uncertainty evaluation.
