A Five Stage Conceptual Model for Information Technology Standards.
Cargill, Carl F.
The advent of anticipatory and boundary layer standards used in information technology standardization has created a need for a new base level theory that can be used to anticipate the problems that will be encountered in standards planning, creation, and implementation. To meet this need, a five-level model of standards has been developed. The model reflects the growing level of sophistication in information technology standards, and provides a basis for beginning to structure the environment in which standards planning and creation takes place. The text is supplemented by eight figures, which are replicated along with other overhead transparencies used during the presentation of the paper. (Author/EW)
