This lecture outlines the history of metrology, which is defined as the scientific study of measurement, from earliest times to the present day and covers the development of measuring instruments, tools and systems in use today.

It also leads to the standardisation of the units of measurement which now manifests itself in the production and interchangeability of engineering components on a global scale.
