Why a 4:1 TUR is not enough: The importance of analyzing the probability of false accept risk

Several organizations and publications reference or insist on maintaining a 4:1 Test Uncertainty Ratio (TUR) without understanding the level of risk that they may be subjecting themselves to. The general thought is if the lab performing the calibrations has standards at least four times better then what they are calibrating that everything is good. This paper discusses TUR, PFA Risk, and why the location of the measurement matters. We will discuss two managed risk guard banding methods (5 & 6) found in the ANSI/NCSL Z540.3 Handbook. We will show that a 4:1 TUR is not enough and can result in a 50 % risk.

An Introduction to the Differences Between the Two Most Recognized Force Standards

Morehouse has been performing both ASTM E74 and ISO 376 calibrations for more than fifteen years. We have been calibrating in accordance with the ASTM E74 standard since its introduction in 1974, and performing ISO 376 calibrations since sometime in early 2000. Until recently, we assumed that the rest of the world and force community knew that the standards were completely different and that either standard could not be substituted for another. This paper explains those differences in more detail.

What is measurement risk?

Measurement decision risk as probability that an incorrect decision will result from a measurement. Are you telling your customers instrument passes without considering measurement uncertainty? If taken to court, are your measurement defensible? This paper examines the proper way to make statements of compliance.

Morehouse software for 4215, HADI, and DSC-USB for use with 1 - 6 indicators (ASTM E4, ISO 7500, Scale Calibration, Summation and Weighing Applications)

V1.0.0: 2019 version Morehouse software, which uses the coefficients from the calibration report, typically ASTM E74 or ISO 376 report to ensure the mV/V values can be converted to engineering units. Keeping the calibration in mV/V is important as any adjustments are made at the time of calibration by issuing new coefficients. This keeps the cost down and allows the end-user the ability to easily compare the stability from one calibration to another.  It also allows adjustments to other engineering units such as N, kN, kgf, & lbf. In addition, the software allows for multiple load cells to be summed together for weighing or other applications where each individual load cell can be monitored as a percentage of the overall applied load. This feature may be useful for calibrating pipe testers, large force machines where several load cells are required or checking the center of gravity.  In addition, the software can convert force to mass values such as lb, kg, grams, and ounces which is useful for the calibration of scales.
