Measurement of dimensions such as length, hickness, diameter,taper, angle, flatness, profile and others.
Measurements taken after the part is produced
Term inspection – checking dimensions and determining whetherit complies with specifications.
In-process, On-line or Real-Time Inspection:
Checking part characteristics while part is being produced.
Range of measurement:
The physical variables that are measured between twovalues.One is the higher calibration value H, and the other isLower value L, The difference between H, and L, is called range.
Is the smallest difference in dimensions that the instrument candetect.
The ability of a measurement to match the actual value of thequantity being measured.
The degree to which the instrument gives repeatedmeasurements of the same standard.
The difference between precision and accuracy can be shown by the spread of shooting of a tar-get (as shown in Diagram below).
