Preliminary Pre-Visit Procedures

Preliminary Information

With the preliminary information supplied by the manufacturer, the IAC conducts any necessary library research, analyzes various production processes, identifies potential energy conservation, pollution prevention, and productivity improvement opportunities, and determines what further data are needed. A simple map of the plant and a list of the larger more significant equipment is useful to plan what data sould be collected, and thus what measurement equipment should be brought by the team on the plant visit.

Safety

Safety is of pimary concern to the IAC program, so recommendations for personal protection equipment (PPE) to be worn by Student Project Engineers and the visit leader are requested from the plant. Typically, each Student Project Engineer wears hard-toed shoes, safety glasses, and ear plugs for manufacturing environments. Hard hats may be required fo certain manufacturing plants, and those can be brought along or supplied by the plant. For plants producing food items, usually items such as hair nets, smocks, or heavy coats for freezer areas are supplied by the plant. For certain large plants, complex procedures, or where the compny has policy, the visiting team may undergo special safety training once they are on he site. A Student Leader and Student Safety Officer are assigned for each plant visit.
