Within a manufacturing company the role of metrology, first and foremost, must be as a business tool.  “Metrology adds value and reduces costs, which ultimately improves the relationship with customers. Metrology can bring to manufacturing a real confidence in any measurement results, allowing management to make decisions with a greater degree of assurance. It will also tell you how well you are performing, and becomes  an essential tool to help improve business to outperform global competition” quoted  Trevor Troman Head of Metrology for Coventry University Chair of the MMM Roadshow 2015.

Good measurement systems equate to better business decisions, and MIM 2016 will provide the ideal opportunity for visitors to find out about how our exhibitors can influence and improve their businesses.
