The changing phase of measurements through time
As technology has advanced, there has been renewed interest
in the quality of products that are being manufactured. There
are trade agreements between countries and between
continents to regulate the quality of products coming out of
the different manufacturing areas. To assure quality, the
issue of being able to carry out proper measurements cannot
be ignored. As advances have been made, the standards for
quality have also been raised. Ever since the ancient times, it
has been a norm that in interactions between humans and
trading relationships, measurements have been used and so
POS system with scale is of great use. While it may be
argued that the way measurements are done today have drastically changed from what used to
occur in the past, the basis for making measurements has not really changed.
In the past the Egyptian used the pharaoh as the basis for measurement. A pharaoh is a
measurement ha is based on using the parts of the body of the king or pharaoh as they were
referred to in the past. Other ancient measurements include the cubit which was also based on a
body part the elbow. A cubit was considered the length of from the elbow to the top of the middle
finger. In later years, we will come across the pound and foot which are measurements that came
out of the United Kingdom. By the time the pound or foot measurement was losing its importance
the next thing that came up was the metric system out of France. Today measurements have
become even more complicated with different measuring tools some of which are complicated
like Analytical weighing balance. Today the standards of measurements have been modified
until we have ended with the SI metric system.
The measuring instrument
When it comes to making measurements, the instrument
used to measure is the most important item such as
industrial counting scale when it comes to making correct
measurements. That is to say that how corrector incorrect a
measurement is will depend on the accuracy of the
instrument that was used to measure it. It therefore means
that a lot of care should be given in the selection of the
measuring instrument. To help chose the right instrument,
you should be able to have an idea of the number of
parameters that you will need.
Any measuring equipment that does not have this number of parameters will be automatically
eliminated. Another consideration when choosing a measuring instrument such as digital bench
scale is to make sure that the instrument chosen can be able to measure the smallest amount of
the item to be measured. Also, when choosing and instrument to make measurements with, its
accuracy level should be acceptable for the type of measurement that you want to make. For
example, if you are looking for an accuracy of +/- 1, there is no need working with an instrument
that has an accuracy of +/- 5
