“There is no such thing as an easy experiment, nor is there any substitute for careful
experimentation in many areas of basic research and applied product development.”
From Experimental Methods for Engineers by J. P. Holman
Measurement is a multidisciplinary experimental science. Measurement systems
synergistically blend science, engineering and statistical methods to provide
fundamental data for research, design and development, control of processes and
operations, and facilitate safe and economic performance of systems.
The gallery arrangement for the Un-Private House
was modeled after a house, with sections of the gal-
lery and the associated furniture imitating the var-
ious rooms and functions present in a house. The
exhibit had 26 architectural projects on display, and
there weremodels and other display pieces for each
house distributed throughout the gallery on the ta-
bles and other pieces of furniture. Figure 1 shows
the layout of the gallery, with the entrance to the
gallery in the upper right corner and the dining ta-
ble as a round gray and white circle in the lower left.
There is a bustling atmosphere in the headquarters of the globally active Confusio
Corporation. Everything seems to be just fine. Yet, there is a bad atmosphere in
the precious wood-paneled conference room of the managing director Paul Peppy.
Peppy has drummed together his top managers from all important branch offices; a
hard and uncompromising crackdown is urgently required! Concerning the topic of
the crisis summit, he has intentionally left the participants in the dark.
