Shop floor to top floor integration: Tell us how that's going

People talk about fully integrated systems, but who's actually doing it? Tell us your experience in our survey.

09/23/2013


For years, manufacturers and networking suppliers have talked about connecting the shop floor to the top floor with integration of all networks from the enterprise to plant-level systems. The question is, how extensively have companies done this in the real world? We’d like your help with a brief survey regarding this type of information integration. This survey asks how far you've gone with your efforts, how you have used some of the resulting capabilities, and what you're anticipating down the road.

Your opinions are important to us and so is your time. As a token of our appreciation, all respondents who complete the survey can enter a drawing to win a $150 Visa Gift Card.*

Most questions can be quickly answered by just clicking a response. Individual responses are kept confidential and tallied in combination with those of similar respondents. Would you please take a few minutes now to provide your input? Click here to take the survey.
