  • Understand issues relating to calibration intervals and normative constraints
  • Know how to use the various optimization techniques described in FD X07-014: drift study, using uncertainties and the OPPERET method (Optimization of calibration intervals)
  • Optimise calibration intervals for the company’s measuring instrument base
  • Reduce MIM costs while also limiting risks by monitoring procedures

Metrology managers, quality managers, employees involved in managing the measuring instruments base and the related calibration intervals.

  • Basic maths skills
  • Basic Excel skills
  • Basic knowledge of metrology

By the end of the course, the participant will be able to select and give a reasoned case for the calibration intervals best suited to the company’s measuring instrument base, thus guaranteeing the industrial risk while reducing calibration costs.
