Leading2Lean Manufacturing Index

At Leading2Lean, we are dedicated to helping manufacturers be their best at producing the goods that businesses and consumers use every day. We understand the importance of manufacturing to the U.S. economy as well as the intense pressure on manufacturers to remain competitive in the global economy. It is for these reasons that we launched our first annual Leading2Lean Manufacturing Index.

Our Goal

With the Leading2Lean Manufacturing Index, we will annually measure and report on the American public’s perception of manufacturing in the U.S. We will look at key metrics and track trends over time so, as the manufacturing sector evolves, the public’s understanding of it can be assessed.

Leading2Lean utilized a professional market research company, ORC International, to perform an online survey of 1,002 adults 18+ that were demographically representative of the U.S. population. The survey was administered in July, 2018 and the results are accurate at a 95% confidence interval.
