Throughout history, measurement and science have worked together to produce technological advancements.

Metrology Parts has announced the release of its latest resource “A Comprehensive Guide to Measurement Standards.” This resource provides an in-depth look at measurement standards by covering the importance of measuring, what is measured, metrological definitions, and the history of measurements.

The most common types of measurements are length, weight, volume, and time. Modern society is reliant on frequent quantifications, and due to Henry Ford applying measure standardization to the auto industry, measurements play a crucial role in manufacturing. Scientific metrology is the science of measurement while industrial metrology is when measurements are applied to manufacturing, and legal metrology is any measurement activity aimed to ensure fair trade and protect the consumer.

According to Metrology Parts, “Throughout history, measurement and science have worked together to produce technological advancements.” In 3000 BC, Egyptians used a cubit as the measuring standard, and in 1215 AD, the Magna Carta declared a uniform system to measure ale, wine, corn, and weights. In 1657, the pendulum clock received its patent which improved the accuracy of time measurements. In 1875, the Convention of the Metre was signed by 17 nations, and the International Bureau of Weights and Measures was established. In 1960, the International System of Units was created, and in 1971, the mole was added as the seventh SI base unit.
