Modelling is the basis on which we extract information from measurement. For the information to be reliable the model must be valid. The main output of the modelling process in metrology is usually a measurement result, i.e., an estimate of the value of a parameter, and a statement of its uncertainty. In validating a measurement result it is necessary to consider both the parameter estimate and its ststed uncertainty. In the paper, we give a brief introduction to the modelling and model validation Best Practice Guides that have been produced by the NMS Software Support for Metrology Programme.
