An unique feature of this web site is "Your Page," which customizes a version of the site to fit user needs. Weekly email notification highlights can also be sent.
Manufacturing Marketplace's home page has four sections: magazine highlights, economics, Year 2000, and news in depth. The 24 magazines of the Manufacturing Marketplace "umbrella" include: Control Engineering , Instrumentation and Automation News, Plant Engineering , Design News , and Powder/Bulk Solids .
