In many cases research projects do not include standardization early enough, because they are not aware of the benefits. They quite often believe that standardization requires full manufacturing and distributes forces at the expense of research centers.  But, on the contrary, early standards work gains big time-to-market advantages, because:

  • Products are commercialized faster
  • Products reach global markets
  • Standardization contributes to customer confidence
  • Standardization exploits research results
  • Standardization ensures interoperability
  • Standardization lowers the burden of evolution and maintenance, supported by industry
  • Standardization improves technologies and products through multiple feed-back
E. Approximate Salary Range:

On an average, salary will be from Rs 20,000 to Rs 1,00,000
