The techniques of automation have been experiencing a rapid expansion in the past few years. It became apparent that standards should be arrived at to prevent chaos in this relatively new means of production. In August of 1954, the Radio Electronics Television Manufacturing Association organized a committee to propose standards in this field of automation. The great interest shown, by industry in general, indicated the urgent need for this type of action. The progress, observations, and results of this standardization activity will be described and outlined in detail.
