All manufacturing companies that get audited require some or all of their calibration certificates to specify the calibration uncertainty. At a minimum, some manufacturers only need certified uncertainty for gages that are reference standards, which are used to calibrate other gages. Those companies would usually send their reference standards to an outside calibration source for certification. Often it would be convenient, however, to know how to certify your own gages. For those companies, as well as companies that have to certify all of their calibrations, this article shows the steps required to do your own uncertainty certifications.

Tech Tip
Enhanced Gage Status Monitoring in GAGEtrak 7

Gage Status has expanded from a basic indicator of Active vs Inactive to a method of categorizing gages. In previous versions of GAGEtrak, only Status 1 was Active, but now, any status can be designated as such, which adds dynamic opportunity to sorting, locating groups of gages and filtering reports.
As an example, many companies designate between company-owned and employee-owned gages. Frequently, the ownership designation is made in the Owner field on the Gages -> Information tab, but this field is typically not in reports or the Quick Filter. Further, if the company's policy is to enter the employee's name in the Owner field, searching for all employee-owned gages can become challenging. The GAGEtrak sample database installs with Status 6 - Employee Owned. This status is set to be included in lists of due gages, so these gages appear on the Dashboard and on all Due Listing reports.
Navigate to Setup -> Status IDs to add a new status category or to change the settings of an existing category.
Enter a new status in the empty row of fields on the Status IDs window. Check the checkbox on the right to include gages with that status on Due Listing reports and the Dashboard (i.e., to designate those gages to be included in lists of due gages). After saving the record, a new, blank row of fields will appear at the bottom, allowing you to enter another status.
Since the Status field is included in the Quick Filter, it's easy to find all gages of a particular status designation:
