This document describes a research project to recommend a decision tool that the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division (MSID) could use during its strategic-planning process to evaluate which standards activities to support. This paper describes how to apply a methodology originally developed to identify relevant standards that could enbable shop-floor processes to interoperate more effectively. A classification strategy is presetned to categorize the standards identified during the standards-identification process. A vision for a World-Wide-Web based information resource if presented. A road map that relates the methodology to the division strategic-planning process is discussed. Proposals for further work are included.
