The main methodological provisions and recommendations on the impact of metrological support of technical indicators of product quality on changes in operating costs of the consumer and the producer are presented in the article. Revolutionary changes in engineering and technology lead to fully automated production where control over all processes is realized in real time taking into account changing external conditions. Cyber physical systems create virtual copies of the physical world objects, control physical processes and make decentralized decisions. They can be combined into one network, interact in real-time mode, can be self-corrected and self-educated. Experts highlight several basic technologies, implementation of which is expected to result in revolutionary changes. Therefore, today, a metrological toolkit for tracking and verifying the mechanized factory system not only ensures a high level of safety, reliability and its operability, but also creates value in business processes. As a result, it becomes a strategic focus for companies and requires a comprehensive approach. In the process of the life cycle, the factory system of machines can be in a number of conditions: working, faulty, unworking, other marginal states.
Organizational and technical metrological systems, which are used in the control and regulation of the factory system of machines, as a rule, require certain material and financial resources. Accordingly, this leads to changes in certain items of economic costs for a product manufacturer as well as its consumer. Therefore, metrological support of equipment, machines and aggregates gains particular importance as well as the process of their restoration.
Thus, the task of organizing equipment technical maintenance not only preserves the appropriate level of suitability throughout the whole period of operation, that is acceptable probability of special situations occurrence caused by malfunctions of equipment, machines, aggregates and other complex subsystems, but also the ability to determine the level of error of a particular state of the system of machines. In other words, metrological support is required in the systems of machine functioning management and this changes the philosophy of the approach to recovery, and accordingly, the task of merological service. The quality of the technical condition of modern factory system of machines must be provided, mainly by maintenance methods according to the technical condition. The use of metrological methods requires constant control of the level of suitability of equipment, machines, aggregates and other complex aggregates in operation, as well as early detection of negative trends in their technical condition.
