Grand Standardization was a program or design-process within the Gudersnipe Foundation that favored standardizing parts wherever possible, so that equipment could be easily and quickly repaired.

Under Grand Standardization, any component that could possibly be drawn from an existing library was favored over a new component. In vehicles such as tanks, aircraft, and even spacecraft, the program called for standardized, inter-changeable parts across the board, especially between common systems such as life support.


An often overlooked element of Grand Standardization was the request by the Foundation that toy manufacturers attempt to make all of their toys to scale to each other, especially in the realms of action figures and dolls. A sizeable percentage of the industry complies with the request.
