This paper presents a specific approach to the design of a mobile measurement station (MMS) that will operate in a harsh environment. This paper also presents a selection process for the hardware of the MMS. The work is based on a quality engineering method called the quality function deployment and on an operations research tool called the analytic hierarchy process. These approaches have not found a widespread application in the design of measurement systems. An important part of this paper is the selection of a controller for the MMS, for which the authors describe two engineering tools for the selection procedure. Most engineering designs can benefit from using these two engineering tools for selecting components.
