This article summarizes the potential for implementing either or both AIM and EDA into the existing methods for aerodynamic size characterization of OIP aerosols

The Abbreviated Impactor Measurement (AIM) and Efficient Data Analysis (EDA) concepts have been developed in parallel, as ways in which to improve the collection and analysis of data associated with the size characterization of aerosols emitted from orally inhaled products (OIPs). This article explains why they are both important developments and provides advice on ways to implement either or both concepts.
