SISO Standards Products are formally approved items that reflect consensus agreements on products, practices, or operations, as required, by simulation industry applications. SISO Standards Products are to be stable, well understood, technically competent, and have multiple independent interoperable implementations. In addition SISO Standards Products should enjoy significant public support and be useful in some or all parts of the simulation community. Compliance with a SISO Standards Product requires conformance with these Product Principles:
Standards Products shall be as general as possible, while still maintaining usefulness, to support the broadest community of current and future users.
Standards Products shall be established and changed only as necessary. They shall be prototyped and tested before being proposed for adoption to demonstrate their maturity.
Standards Products shall maintain the integrity of the existing product suite and the needs of the user.
SISO is involved in the following types of standards.
