Standards Optimization (Conformity Assessment)

IHS Markit offers an exclusive Conformity Assessment service for your high-cost internal standards. The objective is to identify and eliminate deviation from industry standards by preventing "gold-plating" that drives unnecessary costs. IHS Markit will leverage industry benchmarking and cost data, software tools, and your own proprietary data to:

  • Cull unnecessary and out-of-date standards
  • Adopt industry standards (or portions thereof) when practical
  • Engineer unnecessary cost out of remaining internal standards or expand the solution space of the standard

The benefits can be substantial. Watch this video on the cost (and opportunity) of standards, or read this case study to learn how IHS Markit helped a large energy firm identify over $180 million in annual cost savings in 1,200 internal standards.
