A Methodology to Assure Measurement Data Quality for Key Engineering Materials

Abstract:

Article Preview

Purpose – Only limited attention has been paid to the issue of Measurement Data Quality (MDQ) in a metrology context. To address this critique of the literature a methodology to assure MDQ was proposed. Methodology – The study proposes a methodology which consists of four steps can be used to 1 identify the importance of a measurement (identification), 2 determine accuracy and precision (determination), 3 evaluate the criticality of the measurement to its impact on the final result (evaluation) and 4 record the facts that influenced the decision making process (documentation). Findings –When followed and properly documented, these four steps can help ensure our measurements are valid and worthwhile. Identifying the important measurements that are made, determining the level of accuracy required and then using the proper tools to make the measurements will yield valid, useful results.
