Abstract: Consensus is the main principle defining the process of standardization. At present time there are no any criteria which can be used for the assessment the consensus achievement. In this paper it was proposed to use the mathematical model of S-curve diagram in order to define the level of consensus achievement during the development the regulatory documents requirements for metal products. Mathematical model is based on the peculiarities of setting metal ware quality indices in normative and technical documentation. The examples of carbon steel wire and hexagonal screw mechanical properties regulation were chosen in order to prove the accuracy of the developed mathematical models. The proposed approach can be used for quantitative assessment the consensus achievement during setting norms in different regulatory documents for metal products.
