Abstract: Anecdotal illustrations of the impact of improved measurements are given to support the thesis that metrology is much more than the routine calibration of instruments as is sometimes the perception. Examples taken from NISTs experiences in serving a variety of industries and government agencies are cited in this paper to prove the point that better measurements are essential tools for solving technical problems, reducing testing costs, and improving industrial productivity.
