Calibration

In measurement technology and metrology, calibration is the comparison of measurement values delivered by a device under test with those of a calibration standard of known accuracy. Such a standard could be another measurement device of known accuracy, a device generating the quantity to be measured such as a voltage, a sound tone, or a physical artifact, such as a meter ruler.

Standardizationnoun

the imposition of standards or regulations;

‘a committee was appointed to recommend terminological standardization’;

Standardizationnoun

the act of checking or adjusting (by comparison with a standard) the accuracy of a measuring instrument;

‘the thermometer needed calibration’;

Standardization

Standardization or standardisation is the process of implementing and developing technical standards based on the consensus of different parties that include firms, users, interest groups, standards organizations and governments. Standardization can help maximize compatibility, interoperability, safety, repeatability, or quality.
