National Bureau of Standards (DOC), Washington, DC.
This fourth interim report in a series prepared for the Congress concerns the impact of increasing worldwide use of the metric system on the manufacturing industries of the United States. It presents the results of a study based on responses to a questionnaire survey from more than 2,000 manufacturing companies. Detailed findings include current and anticipated use of the metric system and manufacturers' views on metrication. An intensive study of estimated metrication costs was made by a smaller sample of selected companies.
