About the Naming Convention

PIPs® are named by combining a Cluster numeric character and a Segment alpha character. The first PIP® in this listing is called 0A1 meaning the PIP belongs in Cluster 0, Segment 0A. As another example, segment 0C has four PIPs®, 0C1, 0C2, 0C3, and 0C4.

 

Listed below are 134 PIPs® organized into eight Clusters numbered zero through seven and then further classified into Segments. Each Segment may contain one or more PIPs®.
