Calibration, verification, adjustment

Which terms to use and when… Online — In the Collège Français de Métrologie’s E-LETTER for FEBRUARY 2015 this question is addressed. The purpose of this example, chosen for its simplicity, is to describe a situation, while trying to use the concepts and the terms proposed in the 3rd edition of the VIM. In the text, references to the concepts defined in the VIM3 are enclosed in brackets { } and the corresponding terms are in bold. Any measurement result {2.9} is affected by an error {2.16}, which is unavoidable, because measuring instruments {3.1} are imperfect and the procedures {2.6}, … Continue reading
