AIDC: Investing in Standards

Bert Moore

No one wants to spend more time in meetings (or on phone and web conferences) but you and your company need to do just that. Gaining any real bottom-line benefits from this investment in time and effort depends on picking the right meetings -- and those meetings include the ones of standards-setting organizations.

It's a popular misconception that there is an arcane "inner circle” of technocrats who create all the AIDC standards. Except for some of the most abstruse technical specifications, that’s simply not true. The truth is that the "inner circle” is open to anyone with the desire (and corporate support) to work on standards that address -- or impact -- their operations.

It should go without saying that AIDC standards generally help streamline business processes and result in lower equipment and software costs because things are, well, standard. The caveat is that standards help business processes only when they're developed by individuals who understand how those business processes work in the vast majority of companies.
