Analytical Model for Calibration Results Performances Enhancement, Resulting in Automated Prescription for Equipments
Most of the decisions taken every day are based on the results of measurements of all different events that occur around us. The reliability of these measurements depends basically on the environment in which they are carried out, the procedure defined and the equipment used, evaluating their different contributions through the uncertainty of measurement. In the case of the measuring equipment, the calibration process associated with adequate traceability provides part of the information necessary to contribute positively to the generation of reliability. However, the physical nature of the instruments means that all of them have a certain degree of drift in their metrological characteristics, which requires users to establish time intervals to confirm the maintenance of the goodness of measurement of such equipment.
