In 1962 Thomas Samuel Kuhn, in his book titled, “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” introduced the term  “paradigm shift” to describe major changes in basic assumptions  regarding scientific theory. What new measurement challenges will be brought on by new technology? Joseph Juran, “Managerial Breakthrough”, used the term “breakthrough” to mean  a dynamic, decisive movement to new, higher levels of performance. Advances in technology rely on advances in measurement reliability. That reliability will have to be assured in short term, not days, weeks or months, but now! “Still around the corner there may wait, a new road, or a secret gate.” J. R. R. Tolkien
