New technologies may require new standards: If you have a need for a standard, others may have too.
Take the opportunity and discuss your ideas with experts from the ASAM membership.
The convergence of the automotive markets with new trends in digitation, autonomous driving, alternative propulsion, and vehicle as a service as enabled by new IT business models provides many new technical concepts that can be standardized in ASAM.
Standardization requires three components:
To make sure that these three requirements are met, ASAM has launched the Ideation Phase.
Technical experts from all over the globe can post concepts and ideas, receive feedback, and drive new standardization topics. This is how it works:
When enough interest is raised (subject to suitable market relevance), ASAM will host a workshop to further develop the topic. If required, an ideation project is being set-up that will meet regularly. The final goal is to transfer the idea into the regular Standards Development Process
In order to transfer an idea into the regular standards development process, ASAM requires 'enough' interest in a potentialstandard. In order to guarantee that a potential standard will be applied, ASAM requires that at least two OEMs or Tier-1 suppliers will get involved. If personal attendance by these groups is not possible, ASAM requires that these OEMs or Tier-1 suppliers provide a 'Letter of Interest' that confirms their interest in and need for the standard. The proposal submitter and the participating experts are asked to support ASAM in making the topic public and finding fellow experts, OEMs and Tier-1s who are interested and willing to join a future project group.
While the ASAM Office cannot be a technical expert in every topic, the ASAM Office can help with the following tasks:
All ASAM members are invited to submit their ideas. If you are not a member, you can be sponsored by a person who is ASAM member. This means that the ASAM member can recommend your idea and invite you to be part of the ideation group. In this case, the sponsoring person must send an email to ideation(at)asam.net and let us know your idea or feedback, your name and business email address. We will then set up an account for you.
All ASAM members are invited to take part in ideation groups. If you are not a member, you can be sponsored by a person who is ASAM member. This means that the ASAM member can recommend you to take part in an ideation group. In this case, the sponsoring person must send an email to ideation(at)asam.net and let us know your name and business email address. We will then put you on the list of participants.
Please note: Once the project enters the regular standardization development process, an ASAM membership will be required to further participate.
