Abstract

This report constitutes a user manual for software developed at the National Physical Laboratory to support the use of the second supporting document to the "Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement" (GUM), GUM Supplement 2, concerned with methods implementing the propagation of distributions for measurement models with a general number of output quantities. The software enables users to apply the approaches to uncertainty evaluation described in GUM Supplement 2 to two of the example problems considered in the document. The software is intended to allow users to reproduce the results presented in tables and figures contained within GUM Supplement 2. It is also intended to help users learn about the methods for uncertainty evaluation described in the document by enabling them to experiment with (a) different information about the input quantities in the measurement models defining the example problems, and (b) different values for the parameters controlling the application of those methods.
