White paper: How to find the perfect standards management system for you

WP Bild

Why is a standards management system necessary at all?

The initial situation differs from company to company; it is for this reason that different companies need different solutions. At the latest, the need for a new system becomes important when there is a concrete requirement and a deadline by which a process must function (for instance: "The traceability of documents was found to be inconsistent during the last audit"). A standards management system also makes sense when the idea comes from the purchasing or accounting departments because they have noticed duplicate orders. In such cases, the necessary acquisition costs can be clearly justified. This also applies when construction or production errors occur due to the use of historical (withdrawn) standards. A new system is absolutely necessary if legal provisions or contractual regulations prescribe certain standards.
