Why Process Cleaning Uses ICM

By PC4HS Staff

Integrated Cleaning and Measurement (ICM) is an open source system - administered by the non-profit IEHA - that integrates measurement into cleaning processes to enable data-driven and verifiable improvements in cleaning outcomes through the use of measurement tools and well-chosen metrics. Examples of improvements based on associated metrics include enhanced productivity based on time studies and improved levels of cleanliness determined using measurement devices such as ATP meters or particle counters. By integrating measurement into systems of cleaning, ICM enables a cycle of continuous improvement.
