|Throughout the history of
industrialization, people have been trying to limit the number of measurement
systems in use so that today, only two systems, inch-pound and metric,
predominate in the industrial nations. Since its inception two centuries ago,
the metric system has been gaining ground while all the others have been losing.
The pressure for unification on
one system is mounting. For over a decade, ours has been the last and only
country that remains uncommitted to the unification in the sense that no
nationwide mandate for metric that includes the private sector has been
established. Individual industries, societies and organizations have, however,
been making steps to adopt metric for some time.
