The purpose of this paper is to introduce the new ASME measurement uncertainty methodology which is the basis for two new ASME/ANSI standards and the ASME short course of the same name. Some background and history that led to the selection of this methodology are discussed as well as its application in current SAE, ISA, JANNAF, NRC, USAF, NATO, and ISO Standards documents and short courses. This ASME methodology is rapidly becoming the national and international standard.
