ASME CODE OF ETHICS
Engineers should preform services only in their areas of competence (canon #2).
Example for the ASME code: Bob is working with a team of mechanical and electrical engineers to complete a project. Bob is a mechanical engineer. Jim is an electrical engineer and askes Bob to fill in for him tomorrow because he will not be at work. Bob cannot do so because he does not have the required skills and knows that he would be violating ASME canon #2. Instead Bob suggests that Jim should ask an electrical engineer to fill in for him.
Engineers shall associate only with reputable persons or organizations (canon #6).
Example for the ASME code: Dave has shop where he takes stolen cars and rips the parts off of them and sells them for profit. One day one of his machines in his shop breaks and needs a part designed and made by a mechanical engineer. Dave finds Bob who is a mechanical engineer and asks him to work in his shop to repair the machine. Bob wants no parts of this business because he would be violating ASME canon #6. Instead Bob declines to be involved with the fraudulent person and reports Dave to the authorities.
Engineers shall issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manor (canon 7).
Example for the ASME code: Bob is a mechanical engineer and is assigned to a project by his boss. His boss is requiring him to write a report about his work and he is expected to submit it in a week. A week goes by and Bob did not finish all the work that he felt he needed to accomplish. If Bob were to lie in his report to his boss and say that he completed more work than he actually did then he would be in violation of ASME canon #7. Instead of Bob not being truthful, he should be honest and straightforward with his boss.
Engineers shall consider environmental impact in the performance of their professional duties (canon 8).
Example for the ASME code: A group of mechanical engineers are creating a small motor to power a vehicle for the government. The group creates an electric motor and a diesel motor. The diesel motor creates more pollution to the air than the electric motor and if the group were to fail to take that into consideration than they would fall into violation of canon #8. Instead the group should think about the impacts either motor will have on the environment.
Engineers shall build their professional reputation on the merit of their services and shall not compete unfairly with others (canon 5).
Example for ASME code: Bob has some small projects that he wants to get done. He brings his projects to work and works on them during his work hours. Bob is in violation of canon 5 because he has not gotten consent to carry on outside work and use work supplies. Bob would be better off leaving his personal projects at home.
