IT Spending and Staffing Benchmarks 2013/2014: Chapter 5 Discrete Manufacturing Sector Benchmarks

June, 2013


Chapter 5 provides benchmarks for discrete manufacturing organizations across all organization sizes based on our current survey. Discrete manufacturers are defined as those where the production process adds value by fabricating or assembling individual (discrete) unit production. The 24 respondents in this sector include manufacturers of consumer products, industrial equipment, aerospace products, auto parts, building products, electrical parts, biomedical devices, and electronic devices. We also have subsector benchmarks for industrial and automotive manufacturers in Chapter 13. Our subsector chapters provide key metrics based on data gathered over a three-year period. For a complete description of all metrics, please see the full study description. (57 pp., 42 figs.)
