Topic: Understanding Recent Research on Test Uncertainty
Meeting Speaker:
Dr. Craig Shakarji, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

The subject of test uncertainty is filled with subtleties that make it harder than it first appears. Even experts can disagree on what should be and should not be included as components of test uncertainty. A notable example is whether the repeatability of the instrument under test should be included. Recent research in answering these questions have led to the delineation of two schools of thought, which can be separated by a careful description of the measurand.

Dr. Craig Shakarji is a mathematician at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He has worked for 25 years in computational coordinate metrology and runs a NIST testing service for Coordinate Measuring System (CMS) software. Craig chairs the ISO working group on CMSs and participates in several ASME and ISO standards committees on uncertainty and dimensional metrology.
