OPUS - The Online Piping & Usaage Specification Program

Share/Save Share

MCERF's Online Piping and Useage Specification product, or OPUS, was the result of a Foundation research project to see if its venerable core body of knowledge publication, the Guideline for Quality Piping Installation, could be converted to and formatted for a more modern online delivery. That was 2005...and the rest is history! OPUS is particularly useful for students, faculty, or even recent industry new-hires who need to know more about the basic materials and methods of the mechanical contracting industry and the world-class manufacturers and suppliers who provide these materials and the methods to use them effectively and profitably.
