The quality calibration handbook; developing and managing a calibration program.

Bucher, Jay L.

ASQ Quality Press


190 pages




Bucher (retired from the Precision Measurement Equipment Laboratories program of the US Air Force) introduces a quality calibration system that he describes as a "tried-and-true quality calibration system that every organization can use as a foundation for its personalized program," which can then be modified to meet specific requirements and regulations. Defining calibration as a comparison of test equipment with an unknown uncertainty to a standard with a known uncertainty or the comparison of a piece of test equipment with a standard, he provides guidance both on the basics of the program, developing the program process, and ongoing program management.
