We establish an elite benchmarking group or each of our Top Shops benchmarking surveys. This group represents the top 20 percent of machining businesses, and is determined by totaling the points assigned to select survey questions. This digital edition of our 2013 Executive Summary compares responses from the benchmarking group with the other shops that participated in the survey.

As you review the information in this Executive Summary, consider which practices the Top Shops are leveraging that might be appropriate to implement in your operation. Additional information about this year’s benchmarking survey can be found in our magazine’s online Top Shops Zone.
