    Different types of errors such as gross errors, systematic errors and random errors occur while measuring a instrument.

    Systematic errors have specific magnitude and direction. These errors are repeated consistently and are caused due to zero offset, non-linearity and changes in sensitivity. This type of error can be detected by taking repeated readings using different instruments.

    Environment errors, instrument errors, observational errors, system interaction errors and operational errors are different types of systematic errors. These errors are also called as cumulative errors.
