National Elevator Industry Educational Program (NEIEP), from Elevator Terms: an Illustrated Glossary, 1980, NEIEP Trust Fund.

Not too long ago one of our NEIEP instructors voted his opinion of the value of using standard terminology throughout the elevator industry. He said that consistent terms "give each Elevator Constructor an exact tool to think and communicate with." We have heard similar comments along the way and heartily agree with them.

Thus, the NEIEP Trustees decided we should write a glossary of widely used elevator terms that could become a convenient and useful reference source for all Elevator Constructors, whether newcomers or veterans.
