The "Technical Service Center" for the “U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation” also has several publically available calibration procedures. One of their most popular calibration procedures is:

USBR 1007-89, "Procedure for Calibrating Dial Indicators"


For calibrating most weighing scales, refer to NIST Handbook 44, section 2.20, subsection N.1.1, “Test Procedures”.

"SWOT & Strategic Risk Assessment Bubble Chart" template in Excel (8-12-2018)

SWOT & Strategic Risk Assessment Bubble Chart (Excel)

SWOT & Strategic Risk Assessment Bubble Chart (Excel)
The “SWOT & Strategic Risk Assessment Bubble Chart” template (Excel)“ is based on the guidance provided from ISO 31000:2018, “Risk management — Principles and guidelines”. Use the SWOT to help identify up to 9 strategic risks. Then assign a point score (0-10) for the likelihood (probability) and “Consequences” (Impact) of each risk. These two scores (“Likelihood” and “Consequences”) will automatically be added to produce a “Risk Level” (between 1 and 10). And the “Bubble” chart will automatically update; reflecting the “Risk Level” both in location and size of the bubbles. The template also includes a “Risk Treatment Plan” (as per ISO 31000:2009, section 6.4). This template includes instructions for its use.

"Process Risk Assessment Bubble Chart" template in Excel (8-12-2018)

Process Strategic Risk Assessment Bubble Chart (Excel)

[Process Risk Assessment Bubble Chart (Excel)
The “Process Risk Assessment Bubble Chart” template (Excel)” is based on the guidance provided from ISO 31000:2018, “Risk management — Principles and guidelines”. Identify up to 9 risks in a process. Then assign a point score (0-5) for the likelihood (probability) and “Consequences” (Impact) of each risk. These two scores (“Likelihood” and “Consequences”) will automatically be added to produce a “Risk Level” (between 1 and 10). And the “Bubble” chart will automatically update; reflecting the “Risk Level” both in location and size of the bubbles. The template also includes a “Risk Treatment Plan” (as per ISO 31000:2018, section 6.4). This template includes instructions for its use.

"Calibration Recall" template Excel (5-5-2018)
This simple Excel-based “Calibration Recall” template is designed for small companies (with under 150 instruments under calibration control) to comply with ISO 9001:2015 & AS9100D. It uses Color-coded “Conditional Cell Formatting” for visual management.

"DPMO-Sigma-Yield-Cpk Conversion Table Wallpaper" (1920x1080)

“DPMO-Sigma-Yield-Cpk Conversion Table Wallpaper” (1920×1080)

"DPMO-Sigma-Yield-Cpk Conversion Table Wallpaper" (1920x1080)
This is a “DPMO-Sigma-Yield-Cpk Conversion Table” with a black background, suitable for use as computer desktop wallpaper. The PNG image provides a quick reference to convert Yields to DPMOs to Sigma levels (Short Term & Long Term) as well as Cpk. This chart covers a range of 3.50 to 6.00 Sigma Short Term (ZST). And the row at 4.00 Sigma Short Term (ZST) is highlighted in light green to indicate a minimum acceptable process capability of 1.33 Cpk.
