BMM 224 - Metrology and Calibration

3 credits (PREREQUISITE: BMM 101)

This course focuses on how to develop, implement, and maintain a calibration system. Evaluation of the calibration program is further deepened through continuous improvement efforts. Conformity to ISO 9001 requirements enhances the credibility of calibration systems to ensure reliability and traceability. This course looks at calibration processes such as calibration procedures and records, out of tolerance conditions, calibration schedules and intervals. Students will learn and practice techniques for setting size blocks to predetermined distances to measure product, develop continuous improvement programs, create training programs and audit the calibration system.
