Measurement (from Old French, mesurement) or measuring is the assignment of numbers to objects or events.
Any measurement can be judged by the following meta-measurement criteria values: level of measurement (which includes magnitude), dimensions (units), and uncertainty.

In the quality management context, measuring refers to the process of quantifying a product, service, or process characteristic in order to evaluate its quality. The purpose of measuring is to determine whether a product, service, or process meets the established quality standards or requirements.

Examples of measuring in the quality management context include:

  • Dimensional measurement of a product to determine if it meets the specified dimensions and tolerances
  • Measuring the weight of a food product to determine if it meets the required weight specifications
  • Measuring the electrical resistance of a component to determine if it meets the required specifications
  • Measuring the hardness of a material to determine its strength and durability
  • Measuring the color of a product to determine if it meets the required color specifications
  • Measuring the consistency of a product, such as the thickness of a coating, to determine if it meets the required specifications
  • Measuring the noise level produced by a machine to determine if it meets the required safety standards
  • Measuring the temperature of a product, such as the cooking temperature of food, to determine if it is within the required range

Measuring is an essential component of quality management, as it enables organizations to determine whether their products, services, or processes meet the established quality standards. By regularly measuring and evaluating the quality of their products, services, or processes, organizations can identify areas for improvement, make necessary changes, and continuously improve their quality management system.
