In the latest issue of Contrôles Essais Mesures,our expert Jean-Michel Pou(Deltamu)proposed an article entitled: Measurement error, instrument error, calibration uncertainty: how to find your way around?
He begins with these words: "The more time passes, the more I find our profession archaic. I recently wrote that metrology had missed its3rd revolution and I measure how powerful this fiasco is when I lead trainings. (...) How to explain to these brilliant young people the kind of drum in which the "ISO 9000" practice of metrology has collectively plunged us all? I can understand that practitioners are not shocked by the following because they have been living it, like myself, for a long time. So they naturally think that this is normal. But a few words of explanation based on official publications should still end up waking us up collectively... This awakening, which I call for with all my wishes, should lead to profound changes in the performance of the "calibrators" which unfortunately have not made them evolve much in 30 years. Personally, I don't see any fundamental differences with my beginnings in the business, in 1988... »
Jean-Michel Pou supports his statement with 4 points:
Item 1. The calibrators owe us the errors of the instruments but they only see measurement errors...
After two years of work, the Precia Molen Group now has its own metrology laboratory. It is the first French manufacturer testing laboratory affiliated to the LNE as part of the OIML certification system for electronics and electronics.
