Control Design Machine Builder Research and Buying Study


Jan 17, 2011

We're conducting an important study that provides a helpful look at how industrial machine builders research, specify and purchase automation and controls for their machines. That process has been changing, and we want to characterize those changes by what you have to say, not by relying on the opinions of analysts and automation suppliers.

We know you're busy, but we're asking you to participate in the study. There actually are fewer questions this year. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

Participate in the survey.

We'll publish the results in the March 2011 issue of Control Design and on

As some measure of our appreciation, we're giving away $100 gift certificates via a drawing you can enter after completing the questionnaire. The number of certificates we’ll award simply is dependent on the number of completed questionnaires, so if that's an additional incentive to you to participate, we're all for it.

We genuinely appreciate your participation.
