Expectations & objectives




Standardization is
Precondition for industrial collaboration
Means for cost saving
Benefit for our customer
Source of proven technical knowledege

Standards should be
Well recognized
Worldwide available
Applicable to mixed fleets
Reliable
Attractive to be used by other airframers

The standardization process should be


Global
Industry driven
Transparent and consensus-based
but
Quick and cheap

Governance of external Standards


Management of external product standards (industry, government,
national and international) within Airbus
Operational Standardization is the Airbus owner for external
product standards
Airbus develops, manages & authorizes external product standards
the same way as the company standards
The related infrastructure is centralized, but there is no special
organization for external standards
Airbus coordination process: see page 16

Participation in external Standards


Development
Airbus participations in external standards development activities is
managed as follows:
Participants to Technical Committees are nominated by
Standardization or by the relevant technical department
Participants to Steering Committees are nominated by the operational
Standardization / technical departments concerned
Visibility of employees participating to external standardization
activities is ensured through a central data base
Airbus Members participate currently to approximately
60 Standardization Committees

Standardization Benefits
Homogeneous products
Basis for communication (across design centres and functions)
Approved solutions for recurring tasks
Reduced variety for (Purchase, Storage, Manufacturing and
Spares)

Available standards provide immediately a proven solution


Standard parts (family parts) are cheaper to produce/assemble
