Top Shops aims to identify optimal shopfloor practices as well as operational and business metrics that define world-class competitiveness in discrete parts manufacturing. By participating in the survey, you’ll be able to distinguish areas where your shop excels, and, more importantly, areas where you should focus your improvement efforts.

 

As with the past two surveys, this year’s version prompts for financial, process, equipment, business strategy and human resources information, and also includes a few open-ended questions we hope you’ll briefly answer. However, there are a couple of changes to this year’s survey that are worth noting. Learn about the changes, and be sure to take the survey

Survey participants will receive free data reports that break down survey data by shop type (as shown in this example), number of employees and number of parts produced. An Executive Summary comparing data from the Top Shops benchmarking group with data from the other survey participants will also be available.
