This course will cover applied force calibration techniques and will include live demonstrations using secondary standards to exhibit potential errors made in everyday force measurements. The measurement errors demonstrated and discussed will include errors associated with improper alignment and use of different and/or incorrect adapter types, thread depth and thread loading. The course will cover the basics of measurement uncertainty and provide the tools for anyone to put together a calibration and measurement capability (CMC) or uncertainty budget.

This course will review the basics required for understanding the force calibration fundamentals and CMC development and will provide practical examples and worksheets that can be applied to estimate measurement uncertainty required by ISO/IEC 17025 and ANSI Z540.3. The ISO Guide 98-3 (GUM) process is broken down into a simple process for implementation in the laboratory, whether it is for calculating the measurement uncertainty for reporting CMC (Calibration and Measurement Capability) on a Scope of Accreditation or for reporting CMC on a calibration report for the customer (per ILAC P14 requirements).
