The calculated y-value is easily determined from the calibration equation and denoted y ˆ i, so the residual would be yi−y ˆ (i).
Competent calibration labs in conformance with ISO17025 or best practices will issue “as found” readings for a calibration, allowing examination of the wrench condition at time of calibration. It is an industry practice to reduce the calibration interval by one half if a wrench is found to be out of tolerance at time of calibration.

New technology makes it possible for RTDs to calibrate themselves at the end of each batch. And, when calibration is needed, another development eliminates the need to disconnect wires, cutting calibration time in half.
