The task of updating any technical document is never an easy one. The authors of the original version of these terms created a reference source which has been both well-respected and widely used.
This revision has used the majority of the original work but, at the same time, has concentrated on:
- editing and aligning the French and English texts,
- the inclusion of relevant additional terms taken from other IEC publications,
- assembling the definitions into a more logical order.
The reader will find that the move towards the concept of uncertainty has been taken into account, to the extent that the basic terms have been included. However, it will be several years before the concept and the terms are absorbed into general usage and, consequently, the older terms have not been deleted.
