The article discusses the need for manufacturing companies to provide a global service to meet the needs of customers operating on a worldwide basis. It highlights the result of the global survey conducted by data-acquisition and analysis company HBM BioVentures Ltd. which determines the needs of companies for smart measurement technologies. The survey indicates that the general emerging trends on the need for data-acquisition (DAQ) system users for companies to achieve its cost-saving goals.
