Choosing the right analysis tools for measurement systems

  Raw data is not always the best way to communicate useful information. Data transformations like removing signal noise, compensation for environmental effects like temperature and humidity, and calibration for equipment error are needed to help turn raw data into useful data. Producing useful data is a primary outcome of engineering applications, so comprehensive signal […]
