CALIBRATION INTERVAL ANALYSIS: CURRENT AND FUTURE

Dr. Dennis Jackson

June 2002

- Current Calibration Interval Methods
- Interval Analysis Results
- New Approaches to Calibration Interval Estimation

- Compare the measurement values from a UUT with the measurement values from a calibrator.
- Deviation = UUT Measurement – Calibrator Measurement

- A UUT is considered in tolerance if:
- Lower Tolerance < Deviation < Upper Tolerance

- Measurement Reliability is the probability of being in tolerance.
- A Calibration Interval is the amount of time between calibrations that will meet a measurement reliability target (keeps the UUT in tolerance).

(FY 2002 through April 2002)

(Based on changes made in FY 2002 Through April 2002)

- Near Term - Binomial Calibration Interval Estimation Methods
- More accurate interval estimates
- Alternative reliability models
- Visual analysis methods

- Long Term - Variables Data Calibration Interval Estimation Methods
- Fixes data problems
- More information on measurement characteristics
- Less data required
- MEASURE 2 capability with automated data

Assumptions: You know when the failure occurs.

R = 1.0 at time 0.

Data:Failure Times.

Exponential Model:

R = exp(-t)

- Characteristics:
- The failure occurs during an interval.
- R < 1.0 at time 0.

Note: The points on this graph are observed in tolerance proportions.

- Problem:
- The estimates don’t match the data because the intercept must go through 1.0.

Assumptions: The failure occurs during an interval.

R < 1.0 at time 0.

Data:Success/Failure (Binomial)

Intercept Exponential Model

R = Ro exp(-t)

= exp(0+ 1t)

Benefits of Binomial Calibration Interval Estimation Methods

The use of Binomial estimation methods provides more accurate calibration interval estimates based on current statistical estimation theory.

Binomial estimation methods allow for alternative measurement reliability models, including intercept and multivariable models.

Better graphical tools provide more understanding of test equipment behavior.

- Compute a Drift Trend.
- Compute a Variability Trend using residuals from the drift trend.
- Obtain a Reliability Curve using the drift and variability trends.
- Determine the Calibration Interval from the reliability curve.
- Predict the Measurement Uncertainty using the drift and variability trends.

E(d) = B0 + B1 t(Weighted Linear Regression on d)

E(res2) = C0 + C1 t(Linear Regression on res2)

Generally, a single serial number does not show increasing variability

However, several serial numbers could have slightly different slopes and intercepts:

The overall effect is one of increasing variability for the population

- MEASURE 2
- Automated/Electronic data

Benefits of UsingVariables Data

MEASURE data is often suspect

In-Tolerance data is difficult to verify (success/failure)

Engineering review required for nearly all calibration interval determinations

Variables data is more trustworthy

This could significantly increase the number of interval analyses

Variables data provides much more information

Requires fewer calibrations to accurately determine a calibration interval than In-Tolerance data

Development of automated/electronic data recording could reduce calibration time.

Summary

Calibration intervals minimize the amount of calibration effort required to keep test equipment adequately in tolerance.

Recent adjustments to calibration intervals will result in significant cost avoidance.

Near-term improvements using Binomial methods will provide better visual analysis and more accurate estimation techniques.

Long-term improvements using variables data methods will:

Fix data problems

Provide faster analyses with less data

Possibly reduce administrative part of calibration time
