Guidelines for Addressing Measurement Uncertainty in the Development and Application of ASME B89 Standards
|Publication Date:||31 May 2016|
This Technical Report provides recommendations associated with addressing measurement uncertainty and direction in the application of the existing ASME B89.7 series of uncertainty-related standards and technical reports. This Technical Report also provides general principles and recommendations regarding measurement uncertainty and its documentation for use in the development of ASME B89 standards and technical reports. This Technical Report does not cover methods to be used in the estimation of measurement uncertainty. To achieve these objectives, this Technical Report
(a) outlines guidelines for documenting measurement uncertainty in ASME B89 standards and technical reports
(b) defines general calibration and verification testing principles, terms, and concepts for use in dimensional metrology
(c) discusses general topics associated with addressing measurement uncertainty, such as operating conditions, conformance testing, decision rules, and traceability
This Technical Report takes advantage of the technical content developed in other ASME B89.7 standards and technical reports, whenever possible. That technical content is referenced, but not repeated, in this Technical Report.
