  • Learn how to set up an inter-laboratory comparisons campaign (ILC) based on current standards
  • Learn how to use data consistency statistics tests (Mandel k/h) and outlier tests (Cochran and Grubbs)
  • Identify problems at laboratories, quantify intermediate variabilities and uncertainties
  • Assess laboratory proficiency (Scores z, En, z’, zeta)

Anyone responsible for processing or interpreting the results of an inter-laboratory comparison.

  • Basic skills in maths and statistics
  • Basic Excel skills

By the end of the course, the participant will be able to use and interpret the results of an inter-laboratory comparison and know which data to select to improve their measurement procedures.
