International standards for measuring processes

International standards for measurement

In ancient times, people believed that the weather or the distance can be measured using certain signs or cyclical phenomena, and distances, angles of inclination with improvised objects. Nevertheless, every sign or guess had an absolutely scientific basis. Technologies developed and an increasing number of cyclical moments acquired scientific justification. Also, forecasting, construction, repairs and, in general, both everyday affairs and business processes, are impossible without measuring laws. If we are talking about companies and corporations that are involved in the use of measuring technologies, then it should be noted that there is a need for international standards that regulate this industry. The accuracy of measurements allows you to avoid possible errors in the future, which in the first place will cost companies their reputation, so you should be very careful about all measurement processes. Today we will acquaint you with their main categories. Today we have collected for you the main categories that contain international standards, which in the future can become a solid base for you, which you can navigate in your work. This knowledge will help you improve the quality of your product that you produce. For our part, we want to add that the level of competitiveness of companies largely depends on how correctly they use information, so we advise you to carefully familiarize yourself with the categories of international standards that we have prepared for you today.

Metrology and measurement in general

Companies engaged in the production of spare parts or parts for certain mechanisms are often faced with the fact that they need to make all measurements as accurately as possible. Given the large number of documents posted on our website, to simplify navigation, we group them by thematic categories. One of these categories is called Metrology and measurement in general. The next international standard ISO/TR 11843-8:2021, which is also called Capability of detection — Part 8: Guidance for the implementation of the ISO 11843 series, is very interesting from the point of view of the usefulness of the given information. It defines requirements for detection of minimum permissible values. This standard will help you to adjust your measuring devices, as well as increase the accuracy of your work. The international standards contained in this category determine the key provisions on which the operation of measuring devices is based, this information will be especially useful for manufacturers of these devices. You can read the full text of the documents on our website.

Linear and angular measurement

We can attribute a large number of concepts of dimensions, area and volume to geometric dimensions. In particular, we can divide them into two separate categories, such as linear and angular measurements. On our website, we have created a separate category of international standards that regulate similar issues, called Linear and angular measurement. For our part, we advise you to first pay attention to the following international standard SIST EN ISO 1:2022, which is posted on our website under the name Geometrical product specifications (GPS) - Standard reference temperature for the specification of geometrical and dimensional properties (ISO 1: 2022). This document defines the concepts of reference temperature and standard reference temperature and specifies a standard reference temperature value for the specification of geometric and dimensional properties of an object. If you are interested in the information provided in this document, you can read it at the link we left at the end of this article.

Measurement of mass , volume, density, viscosity

Values ​​such as mass, volume, density and viscosity are important indicators, especially if we are talking about measuring the performance of liquids. Such data can be used in various spheres of human activity, from the food industry to the chemical industry. In order to standardize the processes of measuring these indicators, relevant international standards were developed and created, which we have combined on our website under the name Measurement of mass, volume, density, viscosity. In particular, among other international standards, we advise you to pay attention to such a document as SIST EN ISO 8655-7:2022, entitled Piston-operated volumetric apparatus - Part 7: Alternative measurement procedures for the determination of volume (ISO 8655- 7:2022). If you doubt the relevance of this or that international standard in relation to the specifics of your activity, in this case you can always consult our specialists, who will provide a qualified answer to all your questions.

Measurement of time, velocity, acceleration, angular velocity

We have collected several international standards related to time, speed, acceleration, angular velocity in the corresponding category, which is my similar name. It will be useful for you to familiarize yourself with such an international standard of this category as ISO 80000-3:2019, on our website you can also find it under the full name Quantities and units - Part 3: Space and time. The aforementioned international standard gives names, symbols, definitions and units for the quantities of space and time. In appropriate cases, conversion factors are also given. We advise you to implement this knowledge in your work if your activity is related to similar quantities. We remind you that you can also get advice from our specialists on our website about choosing a suitable international standard.

Importance of international standards in measurement processes

Measurement processes occupy an important place in the activities of many companies. It is difficult to imagine how there can be a production where inaccurate measuring devices are used. As a result, the finished product will not meet the necessary standards and will not be able to satisfy the needs of its consumer. In this case, the company's reputation is at greatest risk, as it becomes unreliable in the eyes of its customers. The use of international standards has repeatedly given many companies the opportunity to increase their level of competitiveness. The accuracy of measurement allows to guarantee consumers the safety of further use of finished products. If we are talking about high competition in the market, then it is worth noting that traditional methods of competition have lost their relevance for a long time, so it is worth paying attention to modern technologies, as well as compliance of one's activities with international standards. The last point also makes international cooperation possible, thanks to the unification of measurement processes. On our website, you can also always ask for help from our specialists, who are always ready to provide you with consulting services regarding the choice of international standards. We understand that at first it is difficult to single out the main documents that must be put into work first. In order to simplify navigation on our site, we have divided all international standards into certain categories. You can read the full text by following the links below.
