Measurement Assurance Programs;  Part II: Development and Implementation; NBS Special Publication 676-II; 1985

Croarkin, C.

NBS Special Publication 676-II; 124p. April 1985.

Calibration; check standard; measurement assurance; random error; statistical control; statistical methods; systematic error; uncertainty.

This document is a guide to the logical development of a measurement assurance program in which the tie between a measurement and its reference base is satisfied by measurements on a transfer standard. The uncertainty of values reported by the measurement process is defined; and the validation of this uncertainty for single measurements is developed. Measurement sequences for executing the transfer with NBS and procedures for maintaining statistical control are outlined for eight specific measurement situations with emphasis on characterizing parameters of the measurement process through use of a check standard.
