AAMA Creates Glossary to Ensure Consistency in Technical Documents

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has released an all-encompassing glossary to be used when referencing definitions in AAMA documents.

"AAMA standards and specifications are used by thousands of industry professionals, and we wanted to ensure consistency throughout all of the documents," says John Lewis, AAMA technical director. "Therefore, the new AAMA Glossary was assembled."

According to Lewis, "Future new and updated documents will reference the glossary at the introduction of the publication. Any new terms not currently included in the AAMA Glossary will be placed at the beginning as well."

The AAMA Glossary (AAMA AG-07) is free and is available in the Members Only area of AAMA's web site, www.aamanet.org. A link to the glossary is now included with each AAMA publication order.

For questions or concerns regarding the new AAMA Glossary, contact Andrea Rhodes, AAMA Documents and Standards Coordinator, at arhodes@aamanet.org or 847/303-5859 ext. 262.
