ObjectivesThe students understand the terms and definitions of metrology according to DIN1319-1 and BIPM-VIM, the basic characteristics of test and measurement processes as well as the requirements that are placed on a measurement process.
They are familiar with the basic procedure for computer-aided measurement, know the most important sources of error, especially in numerical calculation, and suitable strategies for error detection and avoidance. They experience the use of a graphical programming language and know how to apply it for process visualization. They recognize the most important key figures for measuring equipment capability or test equipment suitability investigations and their definition.
Skills and Competencies:
The students are able to analyze and evaluate error influences according to their origin and impact according to their origin and effect. They are able to interpret measurement uncertainties according to GUM for different measurement scenarios and to specify them. They have the competence to accompany and suitably document test and measurement capability studies for computer-aided measuring instruments. They are able to generate estimated values for capability indicators obtained from measurement series, to check them for consistency and to critically question them. They have the ability to extend existing LabVIEW program code and to develop their own programs for metrological applications.
