You're right , and I knew that. Went looking for the text book, but it
wasn't at hand.
There was a full course on measurement tools and how to use them. There
are also a number of CBTs available on the web.
The choice of tool has to be made based on the required tolerances. Then,
the acceptable measured values must take into consideration the worst case
accuracy/precision of the measurement device.
