MAPP Releases Information Systems Management Report

The Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP) recently conducted its benchmarking study on information systems for the plastics industry, resulting in MAPP’s newest report, Information Systems Management. This report dives into trends, strategies and plans for IT in the plastics manufacturing industry. The results include IT strategy, investments, software, hardware, ERP systems, cloud usage, cybersecurity and future planning.
This year’s report highlights major investments and changes occurring in the plastics world as it relates to managing information systems. In preparing this report, the MAPP benchmarking team did additional outside research and sought out best practices. These outside findings will be included within this document as a means to provide IT leaders with additional expert advice.

“The importance of having strong IT infrastructure, especially within manufacturing facilities, cannot be understated. This report gives those plastics companies’ insights into a department that often operates in the background. By learning the strategies and technology in which companies across the country are using, implementing and investing, IT professionals can better plan and prepare their organization for success,” said Ashley Turrell, MAPP’s membership and analytics director.
