A-Z of Standard
Standards are referred to as technical specifications and accessible documents that are based on the accepted results of science, technology and experience and are approved to promote the productivity of the community with implied cooperation and consent of all stakeholders by an accredited body. These criteria are used as the basis for comparing and assessing the quality and quantity of products and services. Considering the growing industries of the country and increasing quality of industrial production, today the recognition of different standards has become a public need.
Standardization is one of the foundations of science and technology that plays a role in the advancement of industry and the economy. It is often assumed that standard is only for the benefit of the consumer. Although this view is somewhat correct and standard addresses the individual and economic needs of consumers, it also takes the strength of the industry and technology into account. That is because by enforcing standard rules and regulations, the costs of warehousing and manufacturing of tools and machines are reduced, the production process is regulated, productivity increases and documents and maps are retrieved, classified and archived according to a strict system. Collaboration between the various units of each organization or factory is also facilitated to advance the process of production. Employees’ ‘understanding is realized in technical issues and by the production of good quality goods, consumers’ satisfaction is also attracted, and thus standard provides a solid foundation for the development of industry and economy.
In today’s industrialized world, as everything is changing, new standards called “quality management” alone do not merely rely on the outcome of the final product and monitor a production line from the beginning to the end. This planned and targeted management delivers dynamism to the various departments of the organization.
