VTT MIKES Metrology – ensuring the value of data
Measurements underpin virtually all aspects of our everyday lives in production, fair trade, consumer protection, health, safety, law and order. They provide the framework and tools needed for scientific discovery and technological innovations.
An agreed-upon system of measurement is essential for a functioning economy and provides the basis upon which norms, standards, values and results can be communicated.
Data – the new gold of the connected world
Digitalization is transforming businesses, creating new disruptive opportunities and more efficient operations
– The transformational force is data. Measured data is a valuable commodity in optimizing efficiency and increasing safety, in enabling remote monitoring and real-time adjustments to processes as well as in providing a basis for more accurate decision-making.
Data has no value unless its accuracy can be proven. Even miniscule errors can have catastrophic consequences in measurement-dependent fields, including air travel, healthcare and power production.
The further we advance towards production ecosystems with shared production resources, greater the need for stringent product specifications and quality assurance.
