Best Manufacturing Practices (BMP)
Started by the Navy. They've taken survey teams into nearly 70 major companies, and prepared a highly detailed assessment of their processes, identifying any "best" practices they find. They just published a report on Sandia National Lab, so we can get another perspective about SNL. They have reports on all of the places they've studied, and a program of regional workshops, a free online database, and other kinds of outreach. Something for your industrial reps, or anyone involved in benchmarking or quality. I'd bet BMP would love to survey a utility.
