About Metrology Upgrading Programme (MUP)
MUP aims to contribute to the productivity of the industry
through transferring and sharing knowledge and expertise in measurement
science and technology with the industry. This programme comprises
metrology courses, workshops, and seminars which are held throughout
the year. Technical staff and researchers who work on measurements and
instrumentation in the various industrial sectors will benefit from the
This course covers the fundamental principles of weighing, mass,
balance calibration and measurement uncertainty. Practical issues
related to the use, maintenance and calibration of balances and the
evaluation of measurement uncertainties associated with the evaluation
of balance performances and the ISO 17025 compliant way of reporting the
calibration results will be covered. Participants will have the
opportunity to experience working with actual weights and get hands-on
practise on how to calibrate an electronic balance firsthand. This
course will be useful for engineers, researchers and consultants
involved in precision mass measurement that needs precise and accurate
balances to ensure the highest quality products and measurement results.
Mr. Lee Shih Mean and Mr. David Lim
are, respectively, Senior Metrologist and Senior Technical Executive in
mass measurements. Both Shih Mean and David have
many years of experience in the areas of mass and balance
calibration. They are responsible for the establishment and maintenance
of mass standards in Singapore, and have conducted many training courses
for the industry over the years. Shih Mean is the Laboratory Lead of
the Mass & Force Laboratory in NMC. He is a qualified SACSINGLAS
technical assessor. He has also served as a technical peer reviewer for
many overseas national metrology institutes.
