Title: Instrument Calibration plan of the Technical Support Department

Abstract

This document describes the management of the Calibration Program of the Instrumentation and Controls Division`s Technical Support Department (ISD). The implementation of the program is the responsibility of ISD; however, the decision as to whether or not equipment is calibrated is the responsibility of the end user. It is imperative that all parties maintain timely and effective dialogue to ensure that the process is adequate to meet the needs of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The program is a planned, systematic schedule of actions necessary to provide confidence that equipment used to make measurements or quality judgments conforms to established technical requirements and is traceable to nationally recognized standards. It is especially important to place this guidance in the context for which it is intended. ORNL instrumentation support at the shop and facility level is the primary application. Energy Systems and site policy provide the umbrella guidance needed for overall measuring and test equipment support.

  • This document describes the methods and procedures for management of the Instrumentation and Controls I C Division Maintenance Management Department Calibration Program. The implementation of the Program rests primarily with the I C Division Maintenance shops and the services supplied by the I C Division Metrology Research and Development Laboratory. An important aspect of the overall program is the user or customer interface. Support activities are initiated and maintained through an active participation of operations and research organizations. It is imperative that all parties involved in the process maintain timely and effective dialogue to ensure that the process is adequatemore » for the needs of the Laboratory. 1 ref., 6 figs.« less
  • This document describes the Calibration Program for the Instrumentation and Controls Division`s Technical Support Section (TSS). The implementation of the program is the responsibility of TSS; however, determining whether or not equipment is to be calibrated is the responsibility of the equipment`s custodian or user. The Calibration Program is a planned, systematic schedule of actions necessary to provide confidence that equipment used to make measurements or quality judgments meets established technical requirements and that its performance is traceable to nationally recognized standards. It is imperative that all parties maintain timely and effective dialogue to ensure that the process is adequatemore » to meet the needs of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). It is especially important to place this guidance in the proper context. ORNL instrumentation support at the shop and facility level is the primary application. Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation (LMER) and site policy provide the umbrella guidance for overall measuring and test equipment support.« less
