Abstract

A key requirement of traceability is that measurement results can be linked to references, e.g., measurement units, through a documented unbroken chain. To an ever-increasing degree, such chains nowadays involve computation, and it is important that computational links are known to be operating correctly. Analogous to physical artefacts are reference data sets (sometimes referred to as "numerical artefacts") that may be used to test that software components in a measurement chain are operating correctly.
The European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) is currently funding the Joint Research Project (JRP) NEW06 "Traceability for computationally-intensive metrology" (referred to as "TraCIM"). The main objective of the JRP, which runs from June 2012 to May 2015, is to develop new technology that will deliver traceability of computationally-intensive metrology, transparently and efficiently, at point of use.
This paper provides a broad overview of the JRP, providing a general description of each of the main tasks listed above, and acts as an introduction to other papers that describe in more detail various aspects of the technical work being undertaken within the JRP.
