Success with Standardization
The following case studies are examples of the ingenuity and effort that the defense standardization community put in to develop and use common specifications and standards to provide support to the warfighter.

    This case study describes a joint effort by the U.S. Army, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to harmonize the test method standards and related standards applied to ballistic-resistant protective gear, such as helmets and vests.

  • Common Parts Catalog for Industry Shipyards
    See how four industry shipyards and the Navy collaborated to develop a Common Parts Catalog (CPC) tool to promote parts standardization and management through data sharing to dramatically reduce inventory, design, engineering, and life-cycle costs across the U.S. marine industry.
