This chapter presents the standardization activities carried out for the PROMISE EU project. The goal of the standardization work package was to ensure an open channel for the continuing promotion and acceptance of key elements of the standards (or set of standards) and interfaces defined during the project. The consortium felt the need to develop open standards, instead of proprietary ones in order to promote the use of project outputs and further innovation. Following an extensive review of existing stan- dards in the PLM and general product data management domain, two key gaps were identified where PROMISE could make a contribution: (a) Standards for product life cycle data representation based on PDKM Object Model and (b) Standards for product life cycle data exchange based on PMI. During the project, these two components were strongly promoted to various standards bodies, and many reviewed them positively. On completion of PROMISE, standardization activities were taken up by the Open Group under the guidance of PROMISE Innovation. The key to successful development and adoption of PROMISE standards now relies on leveraging the momentum created by the project, which largely depends on the industrial community.
