The A*STAR’s National Metrology Centre (NMC) is the national measurement institute of Singapore, dedicated to advancing measurement science for an innovative and competitive economy
NMC establishes, develops, maintains and disseminates the national measurement standards traceable to the International System of Units, providing key support to a wide spectrum of industry.
Achieving the nation’s highest level of physical measurement through close collaboration with leading national and international organisation.
With a multidisciplinary team of experienced scientists and engineers and state-of-the-art facilities, NMC provides dedicated services to industry partners to meet their specific needs.
NMC believes in working in close collaboration with industry partners, to create values for them and fuel growth for the industry.
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 programme.
In 2009, the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and the Regional Accreditation Cooperation Bodies changed the definition of Best Measurement Capability (BMC) to Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMC). The former has been widely adopted by laboratory accreditation schemes, and the latter by metrology organisations and national metrology institutes. This change in definition, which Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) has adopted, requires test and calibration laboratories in Singapore to re-evaluate their claims for accreditation, in order to comply to updated standards and guidelines.
While some laboratories have updated their claims in accordance with this change, most of the local laboratories are still facing difficulties in changing their full scope of claims.
The National Metrology Centre (NMC) organised this 1-day course to facilitate the local industry to prepare for this change to CMC definitions. The course reviews the basic steps in evaluating measurement uncertainties and emphasises how to compute CMC with inclusion of the contribution from the “best existing device” under calibration. Examples will be given to enhance the understanding of uncertainty evaluation steps and to analyse mistakes often encountered in practice.
Dr Jing Tao has worked as a senior metrologist for 18 years with the National Metrology Centre after his academic career in Xi’an Jiaotong University, China, and Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.
Besides his work in electrical metrology, he also conducts laboratory assessments and was a member of the SINGLAS working group for measurement uncertainty, and was involved in the current SINGLAS migration from BMC to CMC. Internationally he continuously performs on-site and document peer reviews for other national metrology institutes. He is a senior member of IEEE.
