The uncertainty due to calibration and resolution, previously considered experimental artifacts, is shown to be equal to the uncertainty that appears in QM theory and experiment.
Many people working in standardization today recognize standards are fundamental. Relative Measurement Theory, the first formal development of an experimental measurement which includes the uncertainty due to calibration and resolution, develops the formal proof that standards are fundamental.
Understanding theory (of standards) provides the basis for further developing the practice (of standardization).
