Initially, Shewhart control charts and other statistical processes were only applied by US companies (Juran 1995:557). Only America's involvement as supplier to the Allies in World War II, "brought the urgency of national and international standardization even more pointedly to the forefront" and standardisation "emerged as a technique of simplification for the conservation of national resources and enhancement of productive capacity" (Verman 1973:9).

However, with the rise of guilds and trade associations, the quality was removed from the realm of production and placed into the hands of inspectors. Thus, quality control was no longer considered as part of the craftsman's job. Instead, inspectors checked the quality of products. This inspection of quality then necessitated a system of standards which would regulate how, what and when inspections were to be conducted.
