THE ANALYSIS OF APPROACHES TO MEASUREMENT UNCERTAINTY EVALUATION FOR CALIBRATION
A comparative analysis of the measurement uncertainty estimation result is carried out. The results are obtained by GUM method described in the Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement, as well as by Monte-Carlo method recommended in Supplement 1 to the Guide. Examples of calculations of uncertainty of relative error for electromagnetic flow meters calibration by two methods are given. The features of application, advantages and disadvantages of these methods are described.
