measuring process / measuring method


Explanation:
Mess = prefix for Messung = measurement
(just for your info Mess should written here with ß (eszet).

Verfahren = all the steps than must be taken to make the measurement. This can be pratical steps (measuring process would then be better), or theoritical steps (measuring method or principle would then be more adequate).

Good luck
