SurveyMonkey LogoTech-Clarity is conducting a research study on how top performing manufacturers manage their product design process. Past research from Tech-Clarity found that top performers spend 25% less time on nonproductive data management tasks. That gives engineers more time to innovate or allows managers to significantly reduce design cycle times. We are conducting a new research study to explore this further to examine the challenges that impact engineering and design efficiency.
