SP - Agree that most manufacturers aim to keep costs down and quality up, but what I wonder is how they use or intrepret micro or macro economic data to make near-term manufacturing decisions. It's something people talk about, but never really talk about.

Manufacturing Turbulence... Now What?

I think overall PMI number do make manufacturing organization to become nervous or happy but at the end every individual organization have their list of targets well defined. They know where the business revenue is coming from. Manufacturing tends to have turbulence everywhere but if you keep your costs low and your quality up, you pertain to be up and running all the time.
