    Comparison of Co–C Eutectic-Point Cells for Thermocouple Calibration Between SP and NMIJ2014In: International journal of thermophysics, ISSN 0195-928X, E-ISSN 1572-9567, Vol. 36, no 2-3, p. 399-412Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As recently reported, the metal–carbon eutectic points seem to be useful as practical reference points for calibrating thermocouples. The melting temperature of the cobalt–carbon eutectic point (Co–C, 1324◦C) is an ideal solution for a reference point being at approximately the middle between the freezing point of copper (1084.62◦C) and the melting point of palladium (1554.8◦C). In this study, a comparison of reference Co–C cells used for thermocouple calibration service was performed between the Technical Institute of Sweden (SP) and the National Metrology Institute of Japan (NMIJ) by means of two circulating Pt/Pd thermocouples and one circulating Co–C cell in order to investigate the reliability of thermocouple calibration at the Co–C eutectic point. The reference Co–C cell at SP was designed and constructed in the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), and provided to SP, while the reference Co–C cell at NMIJ as well as the circulating cell was designed and constructed at NMIJ. The melting temperature of the reference Co–C cells at SP and NMIJ were evaluated by using the calibrated radiation thermometers at NPL and NMIJ, respectively, prior to the circulation of the thermocouples and the cell between SP and NMIJ. The temperature difference between the reference cells of SP and NMIJ, as measured by means of the circulating thermocouples, was found to be within 0.33◦C, while that measured by means of the circulating cell was found to be within 0.22◦C. The temperature of reference cells at SP and NMIJ was found to agree within an expanded uncertainty (k=2) in spite of different temperature traceability chains. This means that the calibration of thermocouples at the Co–C eutectic point was sufficiently reliable.

    Respiratory symptoms and peripheral airways disease in a cross-sectional study on a random population sample2012In: BMJ Open, E-ISSN 2044-6055, Vol. 2, no 6, article id e001488Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: Respiratory symptoms are associated with spirometry results but more strongly with smoking history, suggesting that alterations in the lung other than those revealed by spirometry contribute to cause symptoms. Smoking may cause obstruction of peripheral airways that is poorly detected by spirometry. The slope of phase III of the single-breath nitrogen (N2) test detects smoking-induced alterations in smokers before spirometry is impaired. The aim of the present investigation was to study the association between respiratory symptoms and the slope of phase III adjusting for spirometry results and smoking history. Design: Single-centre retrospective cross-sectional study. Setting: University hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden. Participants: A random population sample of 430 elderly men. Methods: The presence of seven different respiratory symptoms were analysed by a multiple logistic regression model in relation to spirometry results, smoking history (pack-years) and the slope of phase III in a population sample of 430 elderly men, age span 50-67 years. Furthermore, smoking normalised values of the slope of phase III were calculated and differences between subjects reporting/not reporting symptoms were tested. Results: The presence of some cough symptoms was significantly associated with a steep slope of phase III also when adjusting for spirometry results and smoking history. Furthermore, smoking normalised slope of phase III was significantly steeper among subjects with cough symptoms compared to those without cough symptoms. Conclusions: Cough symptoms may be an effect of abnormalities in peripheral airways at least among elderly men.

    El ser humano como instrumento de medida2014In: e-medida. Revista Española de Metrología, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 21-39Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Demands for quality assured measurement are increasing, not only from sectors such as health care, services and safety, where the human factor is obvious, but also from manufacturers of traditional technical products of all kinds who realize the need to assure the quality of their products as perceived by the customer. The metrology of human-based observations is however in its infancy. This article reviews how this can be tackled with a measurement system analysis approach, particularly where Man acts as a measurement instrument. Connecting decision risks when handling qualitative observations with information theory, perceptive choice and generalized linear modelling – through the Rasch invariant measure approach – enables a proper treatment of ordinal data and a clear separation of person and item attribute estimates. This leads in turn to opportunities of establishing measurement references, and the metrological quality assurance that is urgently needed in many contemporary applications.

    Abstract [en]

    Intensified cooperation amongst the national metrology institutes of Europe in all their fields of activity, from metrological research to calibration services, is a response to increased needs of society for traceable measurement, not only in the traditional areas (trade, manufacturing) but also in meeting the ‘Grand Challenges’ of modern society, such as Energy & the Environment; Health and Security, often in combination with the enabling technologies. European metrology had been coordinated successfully since 1987 by the European Association of National Metrology Institutes (EUROMET) but with increased integration of national programmes, a change of organisational form became necessary and since 2007 EURAMET e.V. is its successor as the Regional Metrology Organisation (RMO) of Europe.

    Measure for Measure2010In: Public Service Review: Science and Technology, p. 9-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The global ‘Grand Challenges’ of today’s society – from climate change to economic recession – can be met by science and technology, as is well-known to most readers. Perhaps less well-known is a part of society’s technological infrastructure, not as visible as the universities or industries, but omnipresent and with a long tradition reaching as far back as the Old Testament – namely quality assured measurement or ‘metrology’. ‘You are to use accurate scales’ [Ezekiel 45:10] is just as relevant, and metrology is indeed flourishing in response to today’s challenges. Europe has realised this and is currently investing in a major new €400m metrology research programme (EMRP)1, engaging over 20 countries as one of the most integrated collaborations in the flagship European Research Area (ERA).

    Optimised uncertainty and cost operating characteristics: new tools for conformity assessment. Application to geometrical product control in automobile industry2010In: Int. J. Metrol. Qual. Eng., Vol. 1, p. 105-10Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Translating measurement uncertainty into terms of effective impact associated with manufacture, testing and incorrect assessment gives a more “stakeholder” motivated (and ultimately optimised) approach to decision-making in conformance assessment. Recently developed decision-theory tools include the “optimized uncertainty” methodology and the “operating cost characteristic”. Overall costs, E, consisting of a sum of testing costs, D, and the costs, C, associated with customer risk, where RPV denotes the region of permissible values and s is a measure of dispersion. A complete, 3D surface of overall cost can indicate the optimum level of measurement effort of these two ranges, as recently published by the author in a wide range of applications: optimized acceptance sampling; optimized testing of measurement instruments; and an analysis of optimised calibration intervals and “guard-banding”. This approach is illustrated in the present work for the example of geometrical product control in the car industry, specifically the gap in vehicle closure panels taking account of customer dissatisfaction.

    Using measurement uncertainty in decision-making & conformity assessment2014In: Metrologia, ISSN 0026-1394, E-ISSN 1681-7575, Vol. 51, p. S206-S218Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Measurements often provide an objective basis for making decisions, perhaps when assessing whether a product conforms to requirements or whether one set of measurements differs significantly from another. There is increasing appreciation of the need to account for the role of measurement uncertainty when making decisions, so that a 'fit-for-purpose' level of measurement effort can be set prior to performing a given task. Better mutual understanding between the metrologist and those ordering such tasks about the significance and limitations of the measurements when making decisions of conformance will be especially useful. Decisions of conformity are, however, currently made in many important application areas, such as when addressing the grand challenges (energy, health, etc), without a clear and harmonized basis for sharing the risks that arise from measurement uncertainty between the consumer, supplier and third parties. In reviewing, in this paper, the state of the art of the use of uncertainty evaluation in conformity assessment and decision-making, two aspects in particular—the handling of qualitative observations and of impact—are considered key to bringing more order to the present diverse rules of thumb of more or less arbitrary limits on measurement uncertainty and percentage risk in the field. (i) Decisions of conformity can be made on a more or less quantitative basis—referred in statistical acceptance sampling as by 'variable' or by 'attribute' (i.e. go/no-go decisions)—depending on the resources available or indeed whether a full quantitative judgment is needed or not. There is, therefore, an intimate relation between decision-making, relating objects to each other in terms of comparative or merely qualitative concepts, and nominal and ordinal properties. (ii) Adding measures of impact, such as the costs of incorrect decisions, can give more objective and more readily appreciated bases for decisions for all parties concerned. Such costs are associated with a variety of consequences, such as unnecessary re-manufacturing by the supplier as well as various consequences for the customer, arising from incorrect measures of quantity, poor product performance and so on.

    Optimising calibration and measurement capabilities in terms of economics in conformity assessment2010In: Accreditation and Quality Assurance, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 147-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Calibration measurement capabilities (CMC) are key factors in declaring the metrological performance of national metrology institutes (NMIs). Different countries have different CMC capabilities, reflecting both the existing measurement science competence as well as the perceived national needs for traceable calibration. This paper deals with increasing interest in decision-making in conformity assessment in terms of effective costs associated with measurement, testing and incorrect decision-making. The work examines the CMCs of calibration laboratories and NMIs with economic decision theory, in particular, in terms of customer satisfaction and with respect to conformity assessment issues. Optimal strategies for calibration costs, maintenance of national measurement standards, testing and production costs are illustrated in practical examples. CMCs are an essential instrument to enable conformity assessment both for product safety, legal metrology, quality requirements as well as scientific research. The newly defined term “target measurement uncertainty”, introduced in the latest international metrology vocabulary (VIM), should be therefore always related to appropriate CMCs and related dissemination paths in the whole conformity assessment procedure. These requirements are clear and transparent justification for the development of required national metrological infrastructures, in order to fulfil the requirements of target measurement uncertainty for intended use or application in the particular conformity assessment procedure.

    Measurement with Persons: A European Network2010In: NCSLi Measure, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 42-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The European ‘Measuring the Impossible’ Network MINET promotes new research activities in measurement dependent on human perception and/or interpretation. This includes the perceived attributes of products and services, such as quality or desirability, and societal parameters such as security and well-being. Work has aimed at consensus about four ‘generic’ metrological issues: (1) Measurement Concepts & Terminology; (2) Measurement Techniques: (3) Measurement Uncertainty; and (4) Decision-making & Impact Assessment, and how these can be applied specifically to the ‘Measurement of Persons’ in terms of ‘Man as a Measurement Instrument’ and ‘Measuring Man.’ Some of the main achievements of MINET include a research repository with glossary; training course; book; series of workshops; think tanks and study visits, which have brought together a unique constellation of researchers from physics, metrology, physiology, psychophysics, psychology and sociology. Metrology (quality-assured measurement) in this area is relatively underdeveloped, despite great potential for innovation, and extends beyond traditional physiological metrology in that it also deals with measurement with all human senses as well as mental and behavioral processes. This is particularly relevant in applications where humans are an important component of critical systems, where for instance health and safety are at stake.

    Counting and Quantification: Comparing Psychometric and Metrological Perspectives on Visual Perceptions of Number2015In: Measurement, ISSN 0263-2241, E-ISSN 1873-412X, Vol. 71, p. 46-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In gaining a better understanding of how to characterise human response, essential to improved person-centred care and other situations where human factors are crucial, recent work has attempted to link metrological (resolution, classification effectiveness) and psychometric (Rasch) characterisation of Man as a Measurement Instrument. The present work offers a more detailed account of these investigations following our first preliminary conference report, continuing a study of elementary tasks, such as counting dots, where one knows independently the expected value because the measurement object (collection of dots) is prepared in advance. The analysis is compared and contrasted with recent approaches to this problem by others, for instance using signal error fidelity and loss functions. Independent sources of measurement uncertainty, such as under-estimation of scores, are distinguished from separate estimates of task challenge and individual counting ability, and accounted for in estimates of reliability of the various measures.

    Quantifying Human Response: Linking metrological and psychometric characterisations of Man as a Measurement Instrument2013In: Journal of Physics, Vol. 459, no 1, article id 012057Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A better understanding of how to characterise human response is essential to improved person-centred care and other situations where human factors are crucial. Challenges to introducing classical metrological concepts such as measurement uncertainty and traceability when characterising Man as a Measurement Instrument include the failure of many statistical tools when applied to ordinal measurement scales and a lack of metrological references in, for instance, healthcare. The present work attempts to link metrological and psychometric (Rasch) characterisation of Man as a Measurement Instrument in a study of elementary tasks, such as counting dots, where one knows independently the expected value because the measurement object (collection of dots) is prepared in advance. The analysis is compared and contrasted with recent approaches to this problem by others, for instance using signal error fidelity.
