It means that if a scientist is conducting a study or
preparing notes on such a study, all measurements will
be recorded in one system, reducing the margin of
error associated with converting measurements between
English and metric systems.

Interesting sentence though. It emits an aire of both
caution AND pretentiousness. Must have been written by
a senior level scientist. *vbg*
