Abstract

A study has been conducted to elicit future requirements for mathematical analysis and relevant software applied to the area of Soft Metrology, to identify the generic support needed from the Software Support for Metrology (SSfM) programme, and to propose potential topics for inclusion in the formulation of the SSfM 2004-2007 programme.
Soft metrology is defined as: measurement techniques and models which enable the objective quantification of properties which are determined by human perception. The human response may be in any of the five senses: sight, smell, sound, taste and touch.
Thus, soft metrology includes aspects of appearance (colour and gloss), noise quality, texture of food (such as creaminess) and, more broadly, topics such as biometrics and usability of systems.
