GUM Note
« on: 06-21-2019 -- 18:24:42 »
"Although this Guide provides a framework for assessing uncertainty, it cannot substitute for critical thinking, intellectual honesty, and professional skill. The evaluation of uncertainty is neither a routine task nor a purely mathematical one; it depends on detailed knowledge of the nature of the measurand and of the measurement. The quality and utility of the uncertainty quoted for the result of a measurement therefore ultimately depend on the understanding, critical analysis, and integrity of those who contribute to the assignment of its value. "  -GUM

I've been reading through the GUM over the past few months and this note stuck out to me.  It is right on point.  So, how do you make people that don't take their jobs seriously to have professional integrity?

Somebody posted in here earlier today, but an upgrade attempt on my part went wrong and the post was lost. Sorry to whoever it was...
There are only 10 types of people in this world.  Those who understand binary, and those who don't.   :wink:

Apology accepted....

When I think about things, I'd have to get pretty creative to find something to really complain about.

So I don't mind.
Bring technical excellence with you when you walk in the door every day.
