Paper Abstract

The generation of a Department of Defense specification or standard requires time consuming steps to ensure that all interested activities within the military and industry have an opportunity to contribute to the development of the document. This paper addresses the reasons for the time required to issue a standardization document, ways to accelerate the standardization process without violating the procedures, as well as a planned computerized system to speed document coordination.
