BICSI combined its technical publications into a package deal with the BICSI Members-Only Resource Library. A value-priced offer through their BICSI membership, ITS professionals will have instant access to the information needed to perform the proper procedures in designing and installing the infrastructure that supports the transportation of information in commercial building projects.

The BICSI Resource library is available in a set of hardcover binders or CD-ROMs for $1,029, which provides a savings of $213. The Resource Library combo, which includes a set of manuals and CD-ROMS, is $1,675, which reflects a savings of $349. The Resource Library’s shipping rates include a $60 flat rate per library package for standard U.S. shipping and $40 per additional library package ordered.

The BICSI library includes seven technical manuals plus the ITS dictionary:

-Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual (TDMM), 11th edition
The ultimate resource in telecommunications distribution design, the manual contains internationally accepted industry guidelines, which are researched and written by ITS experts. It is vendor neutral and written to global best practices with the latest codes and standards listed in a comprehensive appendix.

-Network Design Reference Manual (NDRM), 6th edition
The manual covers the fundamentals of network architecture, connectivity, communications, and administration. Design examples are also provided for departmental, backbone, wide-area, and remote-access networking.

-Outside Plant Design Reference Manual (OSPDRM), 4th edition
The manual covers the fundamentals of cabling infrastructure, pathways and spaces, splicing hardware, right-of-way, and grounding, bonding, and protection. It is extremely beneficial to those designers with limited experience overbuilding existing infrastructure.

-Information Transport Systems Installation Methods Manual (ITSIMM), 5th edition
With ITS forming the new fourth utility and the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth, the proper installation of copper and optical fiber systems has become paramount. This manual provides cabling installers around the world with access to the best practices for ensuring a solid foundation of the ITS requirements of their clients.

-Wireless Design Reference Manual (WDRM), 3rd edition
Showing ITS professionals how to plan, design, and implement a wide spectrum of wireless design projects, the manual provides critical information on a variety of topics, with expanded information on WiMAX, WiFi and distributed antenna systems (DASs). It also introduces the application of design best practices in 4G technology, the next complete evolution in wireless communications providing a comprehensive IP solution for voice, data, and multimedia.

-Electronic Safety and Security Design Reference Manual (ESSDRM), 1st edition
Written by industry subject matter experts, including several professional engineers (PEs) and certified protection professionals (CPPs), this manual has become the foundation document for those who seek the knowledge to become specialists in electronic safety and security design issues.

-AV Design Reference Manual (AVDRM), 1st edition
Partnering with InfoComm International, the trade association of the professional audio visual (AV) and information communications industries, BICSI offers a unique and encompassing AV design reference tool that includes information from InfoComm’s extensive database of training materials, and provides BICSI’s ITS designers and installers with clear insight on how AV systems are assembled.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
