This paper addresses a skill standard for standardization experts. The skill standard specifies the 36 tasks required for standardization and defines the skills required for those tasks. Categorization of the tasks is based on task phase and standard type. To evaluate the skills, we introduce skill evaluation criteria on performance (experience and achievement on carrying out a task) and capability (capability and knowledge required for the task). Skills and skill levels are specified in a skill card corresponding to a task. A skill card includes a set of data for the items of skill evaluation criteria on performance and capability. Then, the paper discusses the existing status of the skill standard and its extensions to an international standard.
International standards play very important roles not only in ensuring performance, compatibility and quality of products and services, but also in making business size bigger. In this paper, research results on collection and analysis of courses and programs about global standardization education in universities are described. As a result, 3 programs and 45 courses and of the education of global standardization were collected through crawling 132 Japanese universities. It is shown that two programs are offered as a master‘s degree program and one is offered as certificate program. Also, it is shown that 45 courses are offered in Japanese universities. It is concluded that the purposes, contents and offering methods of the education differ among universities.
In this paper, through my international standardization activities, some suggestions how to build a bridge between R&D and Standardizations and to make effective use of international standardization organizations are provided. I have been serving to ITU and IEC as four kinds of International Standardization experts / management members. In ITU, I was delegated to its Working Parties (WPs) by the Member State of Japan at first, then become a ITU-R WP 6M (interactivity and multimedia broadcasting) Vice Chairman. In IEC, I was the Secretary of Technical Committee 100 (TC 100: audio, video and multimedia systems and equipment) Secretary and finally to be the IEC Standardization Management Board (SMB) member representing Japanese National Committee. According to my experience, each stage assigns me its management powers and specific duties. How to use these functions are what I would like to provide in this paper, i.e., how to bring your R&D outputs to International Standardization activities.
Wireless cloud service is now inevitable and widely implemented to the global use. Increasing traffic demands of the smart phone and the tablet PC is the big problems due to the radio spectrum resource limitation. Key issues to be solved in near future are the bottleneck and the throughput improvement of the wireless cloud network. Video streaming service is included in the cloud service, and their information traffic volume has most important influence on the topics. In this paper, it is proposed that the Bigdata-based Social Level Agent (SoLA), which can effectively and seamlessly offload the video streaming traffic to the microcell networks to enhance the spectrum utilization efficiency. The system is also the one of the important items of the global standardization issues. The objectives, the configurations and functional operations, and the related standardization bodies and standards are investigated. And also the strategy of the proposed system standardization is mentioned..
