What Is Metrology?
Unless you work in an industry where metrology is common, it's safe to assume you may have never heard of the word. Metrology is the scientific study of measurement and can be traced back to the early Egyptians. During this period, it was fairly common for standards of measurements to be used in tandem with calibrations to successfully build monuments and shelters. While the process of measuring has gotten more complicated the underlying principals of metrology have largely remained the same.
In today's world metrology plays a vital role in a multitude of industries including engineering, technology, manufacturing, and science. Each field relies on the study of measurement to verify and validate to pre-defined standards. Creating the foundation of metrology, these standards are verified and tested against a recognized quality system by certified laboratories to ensure their accuracy.
Further, metrology can be categorized into three main areas Industrial Metrology, Legal Metrology, and Scientific Metrology. Each subsection focuses on one specific part of the overall metrology theory.
Industrial Metrology: Often called Applied Metrology, it covers the maintenance, calibration, and quality control of measurement instruments used throughout the industry.
Legal Metrology: This branch of metrology is responsible for the regulatory aspects of measurement and measurement instruments.
Scientific Metrology: Referred to as Fundamental Metrology, this subset covers unit systems, quality systems, and the establishment of units of measure. This branch is also tasked with setting the standards for the definite magnitude of a physical quantity.
