The Metric may be composed of one or more Measure dimensions or characteristics.
For example “Mean time between failure in operation” – has 3 defining Concepts – “time”, “failure” and “in operation”. This includes one “measure” (time).
A Complex Attribute specification, meaning one defined with a set of several Scales of Measure, is also a Metric expression. There is no implication that a Metric is “Elementary” (that it has only a single Scale).
