World of Acronyms
In today’s fast pace of life even our communications needs to trimmed up, tuned up, more efficient, I guess.
Industry especially looking to speed things up, reducing head counts, trying to make the corporate wheel house the size of the 1920 ocean liner.
In our industry of process equipment we face a daunting task of trying to keep up with ever changing and growing world of Acronyms.
Let me give you a short list of some acronyms we deal with,
ASME American Society Mechanical Engineers
ISPE International Society Pharmaceutical Engineers
API American Petroleum Institute
ANSI American National Standards Institute
NACE National Association Corrosion Engineers
ASTM American Society Testing Materials
ASA American Standards Associations
And the list goes on and on, like;
EXP, DIN, DIV 1, OSHA, IEC, NPT, DRG, DIM, GSKT, FAB, MATL, NOM, STD, SOP, SPEC to name a few.
The point of all of this, we need to know what the acronym represent and we cant and don’t assume we know.
Happy Acronym Hunting.
