Reading Practices

practices

PIP's designator system provides for each Practice a clear, understandable identifying code that can be readily incorporated in a database system and searched by computer.

The eight-character alpha-numeric sequence for each PIP Practice contains identification for the engineering discipline, the intended audience and the PIP sequential numbering system.

The first two characters identify the Function Team or technology area; for example, "CV" for civil, "PC" for process control. The third character is a section identifier; two examples: "S" for specification or "I" for installation details.

The last five characters are reserved for the Function Team use, and vary somewhat from discipline to discipline. Generally, the fourth and fifth digits are categories or sub-discipline codes, and the last three characters are sequential numbers for the Practices within a discipline or category (the technology).
