About the PM50 Awards

Is your company mastering the business models and processes necessary to compete in today's global marketplace? Are you deploying automation and information technologies that generate competitive advantage for your company? If so, nominate your project for inclusion in Managing Automation's Progressive Manufacturing 50 Awards Program — and get recognized for your company's extraordinary business accomplishments.

Our Progressive Manufacturing Awards Program has significantly expanded since its inception in March of 2005. This year, 50 manufacturing companies will be honored that have mastered at least one of eight core disciplines defined by Managing Automation as critical to business success in the years ahead. The overall "top performer" will be the manufacturer that has demonstrated mastery across all eight disciplines.

Companies or divisions/subsidiaries of companies based anywhere in the world are eligible to submit nominations for our third annual Progressive Manufacturing Awards Program. A blue-ribbon panel of manufacturing industry experts will evaluate nominations to determine the 50 winners.

Progressive Manufacturing Winners will also get:

• Recognition on the ManagingAutomation.com web site
• Recognition on the pages of Managing Automation magazine
• Use of the Progressive Manufacturing 50 Winners logo
• All high achiever winners will receive an on-site presentation of the award by the Managing Automation Progressive Manufacturing Program team




The accomplishments of Managing Automation's Progressive Manufacturing 50 will be celebrated at an award ceremony that concludes our Progressive Manufacturing Summit, June 10-12, 2008 in Las Vegas. Don't miss your chance to celebrate your company's accomplishments with the industry's top performers. Get recognized for the technology-driven business processes your company is utilizing to better manage operational costs, and more effectively contend with the growing challenges of globalization, outsourcing and off-shoring.
