MPI Manufacturing Study and Complimentary Benchmarks

We've been asked to pass this on to our manufacturing partners - if you could let your customers know about this so they can contribute if they wish, that would be great.  Note that there is a US version AND an Internation version - if you follow the link below you will see.

"The MPI Manufacturing Study is one of the largest surveys of manufacturing performances and best practices. This research is important in helping manufacturers identify how to improve, and this year includes metrics for becoming a greener manufacturer.

Your anonymous participation entitles you to receive a FREE 24-page Executive Summary of the research findings and one-month FREE online access to benchmarks from the past four years’ of the study ($395 value)—comparisons to thousands of manufacturers, which can be customized to your business and industry needs.

2. Complete the study questionnaire anonymously and submit by March 15, 2010.

3. Complete information at a separate website to receive your free Executive Summary and one-month online benchmarking session (this ensures that your study responses are anonymous).
