Dear Ray;
How are you?
My name is Soonho Kim who is working with Food and Agriculture Organization
at the United Nations(www.fao.org). Recently, we created a geopolitical
ontology covering country and group information including international
standard codes of them(download-->
http://www.fao.org/countryprofiles/geoinfo.asp). I believe that in your scope
of "standard requirements organization", county would be an considerable
factor, since context of requirement is various in country as well as
company. If you need more information on the geopolitical ontology, just let
me know that. I would be very happy to answer your question. : ) 
Best Regards,
Soonho Kim

	Subject: Standards Requirements Organization
Please help me identify the tools appropriate and the methods (steps) to
perform the following tasks:
1) In the context of multi-discipline engineering, there are standards from
international standards organizations such as IEC and there are corporate
standards.  Some companies that have their own standards are looking at
transitioning to the international base and supplementing with their own
standards.  It seems that an ontological approach might facilitate the
conversion, help assure complete coverage, and minimize extraneous
references.  But I can't picture what the arrangement may be.  
2) To safely and efficiently perform engineering designs based upon a
specific standard (or set of standards), it is advantageous to have a set of
procedures or repeatable patterns of activities to assure compliance to the
requirements of the standards along with project requirements.  It is typical
to collect the requirements a particular project evokes, manage these across
the lifecycle of the project and subsequent operations, and transform the
requirements into a solution space.  The concern is how to transform a set of
standards into a set of requirements that will populate a database for
subsequent management.  
I would really appreciate all discussions.
