Standardisation

What does standardisation mean?

Standardisation describes a unification of types, dimensions, structures or procedures in order to create standards. In business administration, standardisation means the unification of products and product parts in the manufacturing and administrative processes of a company.

Standardisation measures are usually aimed at improving the efficiency of the production process. In the management sector, standardisation serves to reduce intra- and inter-company process costs. In commercial management, it is decisive for determining prices.

The main advantage of standardisation is that different combinations of prefabricated assemblies can be used to assemble customer-specific end products without having to lengthen the delivery time.
