Standardisation of Design and Production of Statistics

This paper describes the ‘ideal’ to-be situation of the statistical production process of Statistics Netherlands from a business perspective. Notions as ‘steady state’, ‘unit base’ and ‘knowledge rule’ are introduced and explained. This ‘ideal’ to-be situation should serve as an architectural framework for future redesigns. The paper also touches upon the latest experiences of SN to achieve this ‘ideal’ situation.
