The Principles of Measurement
The principles of measurement were introduced to reduce the varying practices as well as consequent disputes that are arose during contracting. As the number of contract documents requiring bills of quantities increase during the industrial revolution era, the lack of a framework or a standard of measurement was ill fated (Steans 2012: 12). The principles of measurement form a uniform measurement basis that is applicable where existing rules are inappropriate or do not exist. Measurement techniques are important in capturing features that were well established during the revolution (Zmolek 2013: 7). Defining measurement produces useful information crucial to success in work. Measurement principles aid in defining face and construct validity as well as relevance.
