New here - Is there an ACRONYM table anywhere?

Recommended Posts

Your post should be a reminder to all of us here that we need to assume that many readers are not long term scouters and are coming here for valuable information and insight. We need to keep usage of acronyms to a minimum, or at least spell them out the first time they are used in a thread.


Never assume everyone in your audience knows the basics of what you are talking about.

I worked at Boeing in the late 90's and I saw a acronym book that was at least 2 inches tick and bound. If you worked in say the 777 program you could have an acronym that was the same letters in the 747 program but stand for something else. If you knew enough history of the manufacturing processes you could figure out where the leaders of the new program had worked before by the acronyms they had their new program using.
