Beyond the Sticker and the Certificate at ASQ-Ann Arbor Section

PLEASE NOTE: We are LIVE / In-person for 25 people at Washtenaw Community College, AND on Webex.
Registration links for both are below.

Abstract: We encounter measurements in everyday life, starting with the time on our alarm clock, volume of water for our morning coffee, and the temperature of our refrigerator and freezer. For product manufacturers and testing labs, in attempts to reduce risk and ensure better measurements, they will have their test equipment calibrated so they can have their “sticker and a cert”.
But how often do people actually read their calibration certificates? How many know what to look for and how to correctly interpret and use the information? Are they simply checking a box or are they really reducing their risk and ensuring better measurements?
Attendees will learn to:
1) understand what calibration is and why it is critical to everyday measurements,
2) read and interpret different types of calibration certificates, and
3) ensure better measurements and reduce risks within their organizations.
