    The paper examines fundamental problems of widely-defined measurement that lie outside the representation concerns of measurement theory. It is intended as a starting point of a research agenda. It shows that measurement is applied in a wide range of diverse domains of knowledge and enquiry for which a wide-sense definition of measurement is necessary. It examines philosophical objections to the application of measurement. It considers in particular problems of measurand concept formation, validity, verifiability and of theories for the measurand.

    Measurement in soft systems generally cannot exploit physical sensors as data acquisition devices. The emphasis in this case is instead on how to choose the appropriate indicators and to combine their values so to obtain an overall result, interpreted as the value of a property, i.e., the measurand, for the system under analysis. This paper aims at discussing the epistemological conditions of the claim that such a process is a measurement, and performance evaluation is the case introduced to support the (...)
