Reap the Rewards

Whatever your industry or project size, PIP Practices save companies and engineers time, effort, and cost.

Contribute & Grow

A favorite benefit is the networking, collaboration, and knowledge-building opportunities for active members.

One Hour Invested Equals 200 Hours Returned

On average, a technical writer spends four to six hours per page to write engineering standards, and that doesn’t include the time of your subject matter experts. PIP members receive a legion of industry expert help writing specs in return for only two contributing participants. PIP Practices are updated on a 5-year revision cycle and can fill in gaps for developing industries and even the most comprehensive corporate specs. A formal member company review process helps to ensure that the best of the best are helping each other stay safe and be efficient.


Developed and maintained by a consortium of industry SMEs, PIP Practices close gaps that cause ambiguity with end users. PIP membership reduces your need to create and maintain internal standards, expands your knowledge base, and keeps you up to date on relevant industry information.


PIP membership presents opportunities for company participants to interact with their industry peers. Whether they are leaders on the rise or the ones they always go to for guidance, 95% of PIP volunteers report they are getting what they want from their PIP experience.


PIP Practices are vetted by a community of SMEs collaborating to transfer knowledge and facilitate standardization. Most PIP participants have over twenty years of industry experience and are involved with more than one other industry association. All of them have skin in the game.
