Manufacturing Systems Technology

Mechanical Measurements and Metrology

Course Description

Measurement and Metrology deals with the application of science in Mechanical Engineering. It provides a means of assessing the suitability of measuring instruments, their calibration, and the quality control of manufactured products. A product that is not manufactured according to metrological specifications will have to incur heavy costs of comply with the specifications later. Any compromise in quality creates rapid negative sentiments in the market and cost of recovering the original market position would be quite high. Hence, an organization should strive towards a ZERO – DEFECT regime in order to survive in a highly competitive market, ensuring this aspect of manufacturing is the responsibility of a quality control engineer, who must be completely familiar with measurements and metrology and also their limitations.

Course Objective

Introduction to measurements, Errors in measurements, Statistical analysis of data, Regression analysis, correlation, estimation of uncertainty and presentation of data, design of experiments
