Assessment Tools For Metrology Training Needs
Assessment Tools For Metrology Training Needs
Gary C. Meyer, Consultant, J&G Technology
Most managers acknowledge the need for good metrology training. Improvement of measurements and calibration comes from having trained personnel who can apply quality techniques to their jobs. The question is "What training is required to improve measurements and instrument calibration?" In some cases, the required training may be a matter of vocabulary and communication. In other cases, cognitive knowledge related to a specific area of metrology such as temperature, dimensional, physical, or electrical measurements may be needed. Another improvement topic may include application of quality procedures and adaptation of industry policies/procedures to serve company missions and goals. Due to the wide mix of topics, a rather complex matrix of training needs often evolves. This paper suggests some useful tools to simplify the process.
