IDEA Tip of the Week: Data Certification Resources

As manufacturers work towards achieving programmatic excellence and full data certification, we at IDEA strive to provide resources to help with that goal. Our Data Management Specialist team has created a set of resources available in the Industry Data Warehouse (IDW) to help manufacturers achieve programmatic excellence. If you have questions regarding any of the following tools or resources, please contact your Data Management Specialist, or email info@idea4industry.com.
