Abstract

This report constitutes a user manual for software developed at the National Physical Laboratory to support the use of the "Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement" (GUM) and the first supporting document to the GUM, GUM Supplement 1, concerned with the use of a Monte Carlo method as an implementation of the propagation of distributions. The software enables users to apply the approaches to uncertainty evaluation described in these documents to the four example problems considered in GUM Supplement 1. The software is intended to allow users to reproduce the results presented in tables and figures contained within GUM Supplement 1. It is also intended to help users learn about the methods for uncertainty evaluation described in the GUM and GUM Supplement 1 by enabling them to experiment with (a) different information about the input quantities in the models
defining the example problems, and (b) different values for the parameters controlling the application of those methods.
(This is a revised version of the January 2008 report).
