Small- and medium-sized manufacturers in the New North can compare their progress key strategic areas by participating in the 2013 Next Generation Manufacturing (NGM) Study.
The NGM Study, also conducted in 2009 and 2011, helps manufacturers in Wisconsin and nationwide identify key strategies, competitive performances, and best practices for achieving world-class status in the 21st century. Manufacturing executives can participate by completing a free and confidential online survey.
After completing the survey, manufacturers receive a free performance report that describes how they rank against world-class performance benchmarks, and the scorecard also targets improvements where needed.
The NGM Study is conducted by the Manufacturing Performance Institute (MPI) with the American Small Manufacturers Coalition (ASMC), an association of manufacturing extension centers and an ally of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program.
