  • Discover the Uncertainty module and learn how to use its main functionalities.
  • Learn how to set the parameters and perform measurement uncertainty calculations.

Anyone who has to make measurement uncertainty calculations.

  • Have access to Optimu software
  • Know how to use the MIM Module and/or have completed the course (FOP01)
  • Be familiar with the rules for evaluating measurement uncertainties according to NF ISO/CEI GUIDE 98-3 (Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement) or have taken the practical foundation course in evaluating and using measurement uncertainties (IN02) or Evaluating measurement uncertainties using indirect measurements (IN03).


  • Theoretical review of the uncertainty calculation (types uncertainty, identification of uncertainty causes, capability)
  • Learn about measurement uncertainty calculation settings (units, capability, choice of component)
  • Perform a measurement uncertainty calculation and identify the minimum verifiable definitional uncertainty.
  • Settings for a calibration uncertainty calculation (choice of component and use of calibration functions and measurement standards)
  • Perform a calibration using the related uncertainty calculation
  • Summary, questions
