Models are used in metrology to characterise measurement data and, where appropriate, the process which produced that data. Indeed, modelling is a procedure designed to extract information from data. Therefore, for any proposed model, the question then arises: is the information provided by the model comprehensive and reliable? This question is resolved by model validation. This report describes some theoretical concepts which prove useful in analysing models, and presents some practical examples from various metrological areas where they have been applied.
This report is the first deliverable of the Model Validation project within the UK Department of Trade and Industry’s National Measurement System Software Support for Metrology Programme 1998-2001.
