Hertzler Systems announced that it has obtained distribution rights for the Aberdeen
Group's "The Cost of Quality - Benchmarking Enterprise Quality Management" report.
The report showcases the operational performance benefits manufacturers are enjoy
due to the adoption of enterprise quality management. It also examines the
strategies, enablers, and technologies that Best in Class manufacturers use to
achieve competitive advantage and respond to market pressures to reduce the cost of
quality and improve finished product quality.

According to Evan Miller, President & CEO of Hertzler Systems, "The report provides
pragmatic direction for improving business performance. The benchmark report begins
by identifying the key performance indicators for organizational quality, and then
identifies those manufacturers who are Best-in-Class. But it doesn't stop there. It
also identifies the common activities and technologies that these companies use to
achieve success."

One key finding focuses on the impact various automated quality tools have on
Best-in-Class performance. According to Miller, "We were surprised to learn that
Best-in-Class performers are 175% more likely than average performers to have
implemented automated Statistical Process Control systems. This is by far the
strongest correlation among the quality tools with Best-in-Class performance."
Hertzler Systems offers free benchmarking report from Aberdeen Group on Cost of
Quality. Based on interviews and surveys of over 300 business leaders, and conducted
by the Aberdeen Group, the report identifies Best-in-Class business performance and
ties performance to the underlying business processes that enable the performance.
