Sampling choice comes down to spot sampling or “a grab sample,” a periodic sample, and/or a continuous sample. 3. Detail diagram of a wave flume. Each of the notations must conform to some rule when constructed to assure measurement accuracy. Let’s deal with the spot sample and get it out of the way. Spot sampling is a random event and will not reflect a true picture of flow and must not be looked upon to provide a cumulative reliable expression of wastage content. Periodic sampling is time, flow, and time and flow dependent.

To measure labor input, the old stopwatch method is straightforward and easy to eyeball. Operation time is monitored; units produced are counted and divided by time for appropriate units per hour. Electricity being used can be measured by taking amp load readings on motors used in operations. The individual finds out how much energy the machine consumes when in operation and multiplies voltage by amps to get watts, and watts by time to get energy consumed. Steam usage can be measured by actually weighing condensate leaving heating systems.
