Title: A Benchmarking methodology for metalcasting industry
Issue Date: 2003
Abstract: From the conceptual point of view, benchmarking seems a simple process. However, inpractice a number of different models and approaches are used for assessing the companiesperformance. In the first part of this paper some benchmarking methodologies used for the performanceassessment are briefly analysed. In the following section, the planning stage of a specific benchmarkingmethodology for the foundry industry is presented. This methodology was developed within the scope ofthe ANALYSIS AND SELECTION OF BENCHMARKING METHODOLOGIES FOR METALCASTING INDUSTRY project. Thisproject, which deserved the support of the Portuguese Foundry Association, was structured in two stages:(1) developing the model for the performance assessment (including performance indicators speciallydesigned for the foundry companies), and (2) conducting a pilot benchmarking study in order to validatethe model. Both stage (1) and stage (2) received the contribution of 8 relevant national foundries.
