The paper describes the conception for Intelligent Measurement Systems (IMS) and Virtual Instruments (VI) and now already wide used in practice. Intelligent Measurement Systems (IMS) are created on the base of the computerizing techniques and in the process of measuring they use preliminary and current information as well as knowledge about the measurement saved in the system.
Virtual Instruments (VI) are a natural evolution of computer - based measurement systems and a consequence of the increasing of the computer hardware power and the new technique of programming. Very often used program environments are: Lab VIEW, DIA dem, Lab Window, but firms, correspondingly National Instruments and so on.The means of environment are: graphic programming by graphical language G with functional blocks and VI, and so on.


Key words
