Carlisle Benchmarking provides motor-vehicle clients with invaluable, competitive industry insights through conferences, focus days and mini-benchmarking studies. Behind every Benchmarking project and event is the most current and comprehensive dataset available, allowing OEMs to see exactly how they perform relative to industry peers. Benchmarking Conferences typically include an industry update presentation, facility tours, metrics presentation, panel discussions, roundtables, and opportunities for informal discussion and networking. The conference activities shed light on the stories behind the numbers, including game changing initiatives taken by OEMs. In addition, Benchmarking participants receive a comprehensive Data Book containing performance benchmark comparisons, based on a set of data definitions that is standardized globally. This unique resource allows participating OEMs to precisely track their year-to-year performance against one another on a wide range of relevant metrics. Focus days are typically one day meetings that offer a deep dive into a single topic. These meetings are attended by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from each participating OEM. Mini-benchmarks take place at the request of an OEM who would like to learn more about a particular subject.
