Many different factors may contribute to the variability between replicate measurements, including the operator; the equipment used; the calibration of the equipment; the environment; the time elapsed between measurements.
Two conditions of precision, termed repeatability and reproducibility conditions are useful for describing the variability of a measurement procedure. Other intermediate conditions between these two extreme conditions of precision are also conceivable and useful, such as conditions within a single laboratory.
