LNS Research, a technology research firm focusing on the industrial space, and MESA International, a global not-for-profit industry association of manufacturers, producers, industry leaders, and solution providers, have launched the fifth Metrics That Matter research survey. Targeted at manufacturing executives, IT and plant managers seeking to improve and optimize business performance, the 2013-2014 research focuses on the trends and correlations between specific operational metric improvements, the use of Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) and other manufacturing software applications, role-based metrics reporting, and the effect of emerging technologies such as mobility, big data, and cloud computing on metrics programs.
“We are excited to extend the previous MESA metrics research work into new operational and technology areas that manufacturers and software suppliers are seeing as transformational to their businesses going forward,” states Mark Davidson, principal research analyst for LNS Research. “We also appreciate the support we have from a great group of sponsor and advisor companies that are helping to guide the research, including: Aditya Birla, Epicor, InfinityQS, Invensys, Plex Systems, Rockwell Automation, Volvo and Whirlpool.”
“MESA’s point of view is that metrics do matter to manufacturers’ success, and that manufacturing matters to the global economy. MESA is delighted that LNS Research is leading fresh primary research on best practices in measuring and improving performance,” says Julie Fraser, outreach director for MESA International.
Industry professionals are invited to participate in the new ‘Metrics that Matter’ survey until November 15, 2013 through this link. Qualified participants will receive one year of access to the LNS Research Performance Management Research Library. This library contains the previous ‘Metrics That Matter’ research report, a 2013 Manufacturing Operations Management Best Practices Guide, and the new ‘Metrics That Matter’ research report upon completion in early 2014.
