the specification to standard lifecycle

The Specification to Standard Lifecycle

Learning by doing before casting in stone.

slide13

Specifications are not Standards

  • Specifications
  • Capture rough consensus
  • Evolve rapidly
  • Are enabling
  • Manage short term risk
  • Are experimental
  • Are broad in scope
  • Standards
  • Capture general acceptance
  • Evolve slowly
  • Are regulatory
  • Manage long term risk
  • Are conclusive
  • Are narrow in scope
slide14

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

Possibly a group of vendors, user community or an individual company

The Concept

slide15

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

Consensus driven within a consortium – e.g. IMS, OpenGIS, W3C

The Concept

Specification

slide16

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

By committed vendors within the consortium

The Concept

Specification

Implementation

slide17

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

By communities and user groups tracking specs –

e.g. ADL, JISC, Ufi

Evaluation

The Concept

Specification

slide18

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

Conclusions are gathered from user groups and implementers

slide19

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

Specification undergoes iterative refinement as it matures

slide20

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

Mature spec emerges from the consortium effort

Specification

slide21

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

Mature spec addresses a real need, is already implemented by vendors and is in use amongst user communities

Adoption

Specification

slide22

Spec to Standard Lifecycle

Mature spec taken by its supporters to formal standards groups – e.g. ANSI, CEN, IEEE, ISO/IEC
