Operators and engineers rely heavily on the data provided by their meters, gauges, and other field devices. It is their eyes and ears to the condition of their systems. Not realizing if this data is faulty, exposes the systems to not only inefficient operation, but potentially dangerous situations. Understanding how these uncertainties can compound throughout the systems can help operators and engineers identify 'smoking guns' of inefficiency and error. This tutorial explains the differences between accuracy, precision, and uncertainty and their potential drastic effects on critical metering and calculation data - along with how to use these tools to mitigate that risk.
