Setting Calibration Intervals with Confidence
Measurement devices require regular calibrations to certify they are functioning correctly. An accurate and well-maintained gage ensures that operators make informed decisions based on the measurement results. Trusting the accuracy of measurement equipment is vital in any quality department. Yet, how we define “regular calibrations” can impact this trust. Calibrate too often, and it unnecessarily increases expenses, while calibrating too seldom raises the likelihood of missing an issue. Attendees will learn how to use a simple stability study to evaluate whether a calibration interval is appropriate for a gage.
