    Default List of Abbreviations

    Group;

    Does anyone have a list of abbreviations that they would be willing to share with me?
    Does the AIA, NIST or some other organization provide an industry standard list for all disciplines?

    what sort of things are you going for? acronym-lover that I am, I think at one point I started an excel spreadsheet with some cad/engineering-related acronyms. although I'd love to hear of one standard list.

    NCS has a pretty comprehensive listing, I'm not at the right setup ATM, but as I recall the CSI UDS portion of the package installed a searchable collection of standard abbreviations. as well as symbols.

    This may sound silly; but what is the NCS?

    Acronyms are used all the time here at work, I'll nod my head during a meeting and not have an idea of what they're talking about... After the meeting, I go back to my desk and look them up
