Going Metric: Is It for You? A Management Model for Small Product Service Companies.
Beek, C.; And Others
This booklet is designed to aid product service companies in finding out about the meaning of the metric system for their unique circumstances and to help them phase-in metric servicing smoothly. First is a brief discussion of what the law says about metrics and what the metric system is. Then what is involved in going metric is discussed in detail in terms of three major stages: (1) a rough analysis to determine whether it is worth looking at the question in greater detail; (2) phase-in planning, in which the considerations are refined and specific plans are made; and (3) actual metric servicing of a significant number of metric products. Sources of additional information are listed. (MNS)
