QuickView is a simple, but effective, assessment tool helping small and medium-sized manufacturing companies better understand the problems and opportunities confronting their operations. Responses to the questionnaire are plugged into a database comparing them to more than 3600 other manufacturing companies' standards. The company's performance profile is also compared to companies within that specific SIC classification. The report helps identify those operational areas that may be impeding the company's growth and competitiveness.

QuickView includes an analysis of 12 operational areas:

  • Management Practices
  • Human Resources
  • Market Management
  • Bidding/Quoting
  • Purchasing
  • Engineering/Design
  • Operations Management
  • Manufacturing Technology
  • Maintenance
  • Quality Management
  • Information Management
  • Pollution Prevention and Waste Minimization

QuickView has been so successful that the National Institute of Standards and Technology of the U.S. Department of Commerce has designated it as a national model for industry assessments.
