General sessions, panel discussions and breakout presentations with speakers from across the industry make up the agenda.

This inaugural conference accompanies MMS’s annual Top Shops benchmarking program that has been in place the last seven years. The program uses data from surveys of machining businesses to compile a kind of “report card” that identifies optimal shopfloor practices as well as operational and business metrics.
