Definitions for "Standardization"
Making any substance, drug or other preparation conform to type or precisely defined characteristics. Establishment of precisely defined characteristics, or precisely defined methods, for future reference. Definition of precise procedures for administering, scoring and evaluating the results of a new method that is under development.
1. a procedure assuring that a test is administered and scored in a consistent manner. 2. a procedure for establishing test norms by giving a test to large samples of people who are representative of those for whom the test is designed. (44)
The process of constructing an assessment procedure that has norms and meets the various psychometric criteria for reliability and validity.
Interchangeability resulting from standardization. Options listed on national exchanges are fungible, while over-the-counter options generally are not. Classes of options listed and traded on more than one national exchange are referred to as multiple-listed / multiple-traded options.
the act of checking or adjusting (by comparison with a standard) the accuracy of a measuring instrument; "the thermometer needed calibration"
A process for achieving the most efficient use of Air Force, Department of Defense, and government (Federal, state and local) resources (money, manpower, readiness, time, facilities, and natural resources), and ensuring the Air Force can effectively and efficiently participate in combat, contingency, and exercise operations with other US Services and North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies.
The process of defining and applying the conditions necessary to ensure that a given range of requirements can normally be met, with a minimum of variety, in a reproducible and economic manner based on the best current techniques.
The bringing of any preparation to a recognized standard.
To bring into conformity with a standard which was formerly formulated. A standard is implemented in order to facilitate an activity or the working with something which is frequently used. Trade barriers can thus be avoided.
Along with pseudo-individualization, one of the primary characteristics of the products of the culture industry, as formulated by Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno. Standardization refers to a widespread similarity between cultural products. Both a method of production and a manner of consumption, standardization not only dictates the kind of cultural products that will be manufactured but also inscribes in the consumer a shared mode of passive, apolitical, and disengaged reception.
Systematic standardization and/or determination of a possibly clear order by standards. Thus efficient mass production, substitutability of homogeneous products, facilitation of purchase and sale as well as unambiguous communication - nationally and internationally - become possible. Standards are accepted engineering rules and generally to be considered as recommendations. They are approved solutions for frequently recurring tasks.
the imposition of standards or regulations; "a committee was appointed to recommend terminological standardization"
Raw data may be recorded at different scales, e.g. height in m and head circumference in mm. Inevitably this can result data that have quite different ranges. It is possible to remove these scale effects if data are standardised, i.e. forced to have the same scale. There are many ways of achieving this including converting to normal scores (normally distributed with a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1) or scaling to give a minimum of 0 and a maximum of 1.
The process of subtracting the mean and dividing by the standard deviation.
A technological style dominant from about 1880 to the present. Characterized by precision, order, measurement, enforcement, and an inaccessible standard- setter.

the condition in which a standard has been successfully established; "standardization of nuts and bolts had saved industry millions of dollars"
Standardization or standardisation, in the context related to technologies and industries, is the process of establishing a technical standard among competing entities in a market, where this will bring benefits without hurting competition. It can also be viewed as a mechanism for optimising economic use of scarce resources such as forests, which are threatened by paper manufacture. As an example, all of Europe now uses 230 volt 50 Hz AC mains grids and GSM cell phones, and (at least officially) measures lengths in metres (except GB).
The methods used to reduce or eliminate custom, one-time and seldom-used components and processes that introduce variability and potential added costs and quality problems. Standardization techniques include rationalizing product line offerings and performing cost studies to determine the true costs associated with designing, documenting, performing, etc. a custom or variable process.
a process of equalizing electrode potentials in one standardizing solution (buffer) so that potentials developed in unknown solutions can be converted to pH values.

The process of adjusting the milkfat and solids-non-fat content of milk to meet a required standard.
The strategy of providing the same service in the same manner around the world.
A strategy of following a consistent marketing strategy across several countries.
A strategy of directly applying a domestic market retail strategy to foreign markets.
Process of quantifying spot map data in relation to the corresponding standard spot map data
