Training & Consultancy


 

The Measurement Assurance Program (MAP) is essential for assuring the accuracy of measurements carried out in quality control, testing and calibration. It is also essential in enhancing the measurement capability and confidence of accredited calibration laboratories, testing laboratories and factory’s in-house calibration laboratories. Measurement assurance is critical to ensure high quality and productivity in product design and manufacturing.

MAP provides periodic proficiency tests (PT) for essential parameters. The PT allows various laboratories to verify their competency and measurement accuracy by comparing their measurement results with the reference values traceable to the SI Units. The MAP has organised several public seminars on measurement assurance for various metrology areas.


MAP also provides training and consultancy on metrology in various fields, such as aerospace, calibration & testing, electronics, offshore and marine, precision engineering and semiconductor. These training courses will help upgrade the measurement skills of staff in various laboratories.


Proficiency Tests

Measurement results have a direct impact on the expected outcome of processes or quality of products manufactured. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that measurement results are reliable.

Proficiency testing (PT) is an effective way to gauge and confirm the measurement capability of a laboratory or quality assurance department. ISO17025 specifies that accredited laboratories and those that wish to become accredited need to undergo PT regularly.

NMC has conducted PT in areas such as pressure gauge, digital multimeter, profile projector, digital thermometer and balance. A new series of PTs that cover a wider scope of areas such as electrical, microwave, pressure, mass, temperature and dimensional measurement will be launched. Calibration laboratories, testing laboratories, R&D laboratories and company’s in-house calibration laboratories who are interested in the PT, please contact us at map@nmc.a-star.edu.sg
