“It’s great because of the consistency that comes with having a common language between different departments, designers, engineers and contractors. A shared source of reference data is the best way of achieving efficiency.”
“The widespread use of standards across an organization also brings cost savings for the business. The ultimate quality of the final product is influenced, which has implications for sales figures as well as organizational reputation.” Automotive
Organizations across the world subscribe to BSOL, here’s what they say:
BSOL is great!!!
When working on several structures, the use of accessing standards via BSOL allowed for the correct standards to be used – in particular those which were current and not withdrawn. This was praised by the client.
Preparation of technical files and audits - supplier management.
Direct access to the current BS standards for verification to physical installations.
It has been a godsend in ensuring items being sourced during the pandemic meet the proper standards.
BSOL gives easy access to standards we need to use regularly but also enables us to find other standards of interest to us.
Standards have been developed by consensus from businesses world-wide, they give good guidance which can be followed to solve any issues.
Excellent resource and one-stop shop for checking and ensuring the organisation is aligned to necessary standards.
The search function is simple to use and the filters allow you to find documents quickly.
I work in a multidisciplinary environment, where I may not have a ready knowledge of another discipline. Having access to the standards has helped with issues arising from contractors.
