# Introduction To Engineering Metrology -Types Of measurements

**Need for Measurement **

- to ensure that the part to be measured conforms to the established standard.
- to meet the interchangeability of manufacture.
- to provide customer satisfaction by ensuring that no faulty product reaches the customers.
- to coordinate the functions of quality control, production, procurement & other departments of the organization.
- to judge the possibility of making some of the defective parts acceptable after minor repairs.
