Summary: In this podcast, we talk about concepts in metrology and measurement. We focus on calibration and measurement uncertainty.
In today's PodCast I reminisce about an old friend of mine, the paper chart recorder and how it has been replaced by data acquisition systems.
Just another little rant from the kitchen of a metrologist who also happens to be a foodie.
Coming up with a new measurement can be a challenge. In today's episode, I talk about some starting points to get you up and measuring fast.
Do you manage an in-house calibration program? I have a number of times, today we look at some of the challenges of doing so.
There are a large number of quality tools out there to help solve problems. In today's PodCast, I talk about the big seven in the world of quality for a Quality Tool Time Thursday.
Staying safe in an enclosed environment can be a challenge. One of the best tools to help someone stay safe is a personal gas monitor. Today, I talk some of the things these devices monitor, and what they mean.
In today's edition of the PodCast, we look at some places where a little metrology know how can improve measurements in the home.
Today, let's talk about pH and what it means and how we can go about measuring it.
We are not talking about your most valuable player here today. In the technology world, MVP means minimum viable product. Today I discuss a strategy that many calibration labs use to bring a product to market.
Sometimes a calibration lab is faced with instrumentation that is used to protect lives. Today, I talk about some of those items and why they should be looked at well beyond calibration.
Quality tool time!! The process map is a vital instrument in anybody's quality toolkit. In today's PodCast, I lay out all the steps to create one and give you some basics about the issues that a process map can reveal.
The timing instrument of choice in many situations is the tried and true stopwatch. Today, I talk about them and describe a couple of easy calibration methods that you can use to perform these calibrations yourself. Do try this at home!!
Ever wonder how you oven actually controls temperature? This is one of the core concepts in process control. We refer to it as on/off control. In today's edition of the PodCast, we discuss some core elements of process control.
