The MPI Manufacturing Study

The MPI Manufacturing Study is the world’s most comprehensive annual study of manufacturing benchmarks on a plant level. The study collects detailed manufacturing practice and performance data in such critical areas as plant operations, human resources, supply chain, capacity and equipment, the Internet of Things, and sustainability.

The results of the MPI Manufacturing Study are available as part of our Manufacturers Benchmarking Toolkit and Manufacturers Executive Summary. It's also the cornerstone to some of the thought leadership projects MPI creates and allows for turnkey sponsorship opportunities for our clients.

The Next Generation Management Study

The Next Generation Management Study (NGM Study) defines the strategies necessary for world-class performance and success into the next generation. More than 3,300 U.S. manufacturers of all sizes and representing virtually every industry have contributed to establish the first-ever “scorecard” for U.S. manufacturers.

The Next Generation Management Assessment Tool allows you free access to benchmark your company's practices and performances related to the six NGM strategies (customer-focused innovation, engaged people/human capital acquisition, superior processes/improvement focus, supply-chain management and collaboration, sustainability, and global engagement). You start by answering a few questions related to each strategy, and then you can compare your responses to past-year NGM participants and export your results.
