A standards processing framework is presented. It is an agent based approach to providing computer aided support for using design standards. In this framework, modules, such as standards processing servers, arc treated as agents communicating using a defined communication language. One immediate advantage of this architecture is that it allows the incorporation of a broad, powerful set of representations for use in modeling design standards.
