Understanding Test Method Precision, Bias, ILS Design, Statistical Quality Control Charts, -- Gulf Coast Conference Course

Alex T. Lau - ASTM International

THERE IS A SEPARATE FEE FOR THIS COURSE, YOU WILL NEED TO REGISTER BY CLICKING ON THE LINK AT THE END OF THE COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This training will be held live from 8:30 AM- 4:30 PM Eastern Time. This seminar will present an overview on test method precision, bias, ILS design, and statistical control charts. ASTM repeatability, reproducibility, intermediate precision, and bias will be discussed, along with ASTM D6300 ILS design requirements to establish r, R, and critical success factors. Test method "in-statistical-control" concept will be discussed along with control chart work process and tools per ASTM D6299.

Course Description

Understanding Variation in Measurements:

  • 'Statistical Thinking' philosophy and Core Concepts as applied to the measurement process

Precision Fundamentals:

  • Overview of the Normal distribution and standard deviation concepts test method repeatability, reproducibility, and site prevision
  • how r & R are estimated using ILS per D6300

In-Statistical-Control Fundamentals:

  • Basic statistical theory, concept, and work process for statistical control charts (I, MR, EWMA)

Brief discussion on EPA Tier III SQC requirements

Abstract # 102 - Training Course
10/17/2024 - 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM - Ivy 2 (Moody Gardens Hotel)

Analytical Training - Bridging the gap between chemists and process engineers

Jean-Francois Borny - BASIC

This course will include a complete tour of the analytical laboratory for the petroleum industry. We will discuss many analytical instruments and their basic function and technology. This will include GCs, ICP, ICP-MS, XRD, XRF, elemental analyzers, titrators and more. This course will also bridge the gap that some chemist experience while discussing the engineer needs including reading P&ID, block flow diagram, online analyzers, sampling, and sampling system. And finally, we will discuss the different standardized methodologies including ASTM, UOP, IFP, GPA methods and dive into QA/QC including repeatability and reproducibility. The course will be heavily supported by real world examples and as an open forum for questions and answers throughout the day.
