  • Validate skills acquisition to enhance organisation of the metrology department
  • Develop an effective MIM (measuring instrument measurement) strategy
  • Ensure that the metrology function is conform with the applicable codes and standards at the company (NF EN ISO 9001, FD ISO/TS 16949, NF EN ISO 13485, etc.)
  • Set up suitable tools and appropriate performance indicators
  • Understand the relevant statistics tools
  • Improve measurement quality within the company

Course aimed at employees seeking to further their skills in interpreting measurement results (calibration result, measurement uncertainty, risk, etc.) and to develop the company’s metrology department.
Past experience has shown that participants need a strong motivation as this course addresses topics and develops tools of a complex nature.

  • Basic knowledge of metrology
  • Basic skills in maths and statistics
  • Basic skills in estimating measurement uncertainties
  • Basic Excel skills
  • Experience in managing a metrology department

The participant has consolidated/updated their knowledge of metrology. They are able to develop strategies for further developing the company’s metrology department: understanding and reducing measurement risks, reducing over-quality costs, actively supporting other departments in the field of measurement, providing a rationale for strategies when answering questions from auditors
