Helen Chen, Ph.D., PE
Never before has the importance of standardization been greater as we enter an era of an ever-expanding global economy. Companies, large or small, view standards not only as the key to guiding their product development, quality or environmental compliance, but also as an imperative in competing successfully in the global marketplace. This course discusses who ISO is, why standards matter, what "international standardization" means, and how ISO standards benefit society. It also helps engineers, architects and land surveyors gain an insight into how ISO operates and how ISO standards are developed. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
