Introduction to standardization in companies and markets

This learning unit is focused on the development of standardization in Germany after the first and second World Wars. For this purpose, using pictures and illustrations from company standardization in AEG, the development of industrial standardization after 1916 towards so-called "company standardization" is illustrated. In another chapter, the development of standardization under Nazi-rule is introduced. The German Institute for Standardization (DIN) is presented with its structure, organization and its standards development process. This learning unit provides a first insight into the development of national standardization in Germany.
