An Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty

This introduction to measurement uncertainty is intended for metrology professionals working in calibration laboratories and metrology institutes, as well as students in tertiary-level science and engineering programmes.

The subject matter is presented with an emphasis on developing models of the physical measurement process.  Since the first publication of the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) there has been a need to develop appropriate measurement models for uncertainty analysis.  Yet guidance on how to do so is lacking.  This booklet addresses that problem.

The level of mathematics and statistics used here is basic and is typically covered by high school studies.  However, modelling is a process that uses mathematical language to describe an abstraction of a measurement process.  This may be unfamiliar to some readers.

An online preview of the book is available here.
