Measurement Process Characterization Case Studies (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Measurement Process Characterization Case Studies (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Created by Alan Heckert and James Filliben, this part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST Engineering Statistics handbook contains case studies for the measurement process chapter. More specifically, the case studies are: Gauge study of resistivity probes, check standard study for resistivity measurements, type A uncertainty analysis and type B uncertainty analysis and propagation of error. The initial goal is an introduction to measurement processes, but the author states a secondary goal as "giv[ing] the reader an opportunity to run the analyses in real-time using the software package, dataplot." This is a nice lesson containing studies based around applied statistics.
