Purchasing Guidelines: Finding the Hidden Costs and Problems

  • G. Theodore Dangelmayer


The ESD control equipment (Figure 10-1) should be carefully evaluated prior to first-time purchase and, reevaluated on a periodic basis for as long as the equipment continues in service. When done correctly, the evaluation process is time-consuming and demanding. To simplify the major tasks of collecting and recording data, checklists such as those found in this chapter are recommended. In addition to the checklists, this chapter contains information and discussion on the checklist items. Thus, the pass or fail marks on the checklists should add up to defensible final decisions based on understanding and a sense of critical judgment.
