Statistics in measurement method validation

Training description: The course is mainly intended for individuals responsible for measurement method quality control (validation) within a laboratory or production department. During the course participants learn which statistical methods can be useful while validating measurement methods, how to apply such methods in different scenarios and how to interpret analysis results. The course focuses on practical knowledge of the relevant statistical methods so that they can be used more easily in everyday work. The statistical methods discussed comply with the guidelines of standard PN-ISO 5725-1.
