M

Measurement check (measurement)

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): VDA volume 5 .

Measurement process capability

Capability of a measurement process for presumed task within a control process with specific consideration given to accuracy (extended measurement uncertainty). As regards variable tests (measurements), the capability is demonstrated if the gPP indicator, extended measurement uncertainty against tolerances (gPP = 2.U/T) does not exceed the pre-defined limits.

Measurement uncertainty

Parameter associated with the results of a measurement which characterises the dispersion of the values that could reasonably be attributed to the measurand.

Measuring equipment

Measuring equipment, i.e. measuring instrument, software, measurement standard, reference material or auxiliary apparatus or combination thereof necessary to realize a measurement process.

Method

Procedure planned according to resources and purpose leading to technical skills in solving theoretical and practical tasks.

Metrics

Numerical representation of a characteristic. Metrics must make possible a comparison with a reference value.

Microcontroller

Electronic computer, processor, memory and input/output switching circuits associated with a single silicon chip.

Microprocessor

Chip that represents a central memory in systems equipped with microcomputers. Microprocessor controls data processing in a system, inputs and outputs and peripheral and memory devices.

Milestone

Time decision point during a project.
