Plex Systems Inc., a vendor of enterprise resource management (ERP) software for manufacturers, has made available a free, online Manufacturer's Management Assessment Tool. The Web-based diagnostic service helps to identify best practices for manufacturing operations, in the form of a 10-minute online survey based on research from the Aberdeen Group.
