Effective Risk Management through Good Understanding in Measurement
Basics in Calibration
4 topics that you can benefit from:
Understanding Calibration and Measurement Terminology

Terminologies used in Calibration communication can be quite complex and confusing to some. This is partly because some of these terms sound and seem to have the similar meaning, but in-fact they have different definitions particularly when interpreting them differently.

How to mitigate the potential operational risks associated with calibrated temperature sensors

In general, it’s a good practice to have one’s measuring instruments to get an accredited calibration done annually. But its everyone’s guess whether the calibrated tools will remain in good working condition throughout the 12-month operation; until the next calibration is due.

Effective control to increase measurement confidence

Imagine performing a voltage measurement at a computer USB port using a Fluke 8846A or 8588A Digital Multimeter that shows 4.8765V. Do you question this reading as you are expecting a good 5V ± 5% (± 0.25V)? And Sometimes, when you try to do the same measurement again (either at other room, or by another person, or using different set of test leads, or applying another probing method, etc.), and you may get another set of reading that may be “closer to or further away” from the expected value?

If yes, you are not alone – as this situation often happens prominently when you are doing high-precision calibration and measurement work.

Identify the risks in selecting a pressure calibrator

In the context of pressure calibration, there can be complexity due to the variety of technical terms, pressure types, pressure units, and so on. It is also very hands-on to work on pressure equipment, adapters and connecting the items. Not to worry because Fluke is here to help. Check out the guides, tips & tricks for basic pressure calibration on this page to identify and reduce risks in your process!

How can we benefit from Effective Risk Management?
Performance Assurance

Identify types & causes of potential operational risks to reduce downtime and improves performance

Improve Confidence

Risk management methodology is a way to improve productivity. Eliminate measurement uncertainties and achieve confident readings to avoid need of corrective actions – thereby saving time and gaining leap in productivity.

Cost Value

Select a reliable and efficient calibration system that is aligned with the business objective to maximize the value of your instrument investments. Know your rights as an user before making large sum commitment to a calibrator.
