Invitation to Participate in MEMS Industry Commercialization Report Card
EXTENDED to June 8, 2022
Dear MEMS Colleague…good day.
I greatly appreciated the valuable assistance of the MEMS community in helping me create the 2020 MEMS Commercialization Report Card. The year 2020 marked the 22nd anniversary of the creation and publication of this important and unique retrospective “yardstick” assessing the progress of the commercialization of MEMS. While the overall grade of the 14 “subjects” of the Report Card remained at B-, the more interesting items were the changes in the individual grades and the verbatims that were provided.
My July 2021 Fierce Electronics and October 2021 Commercial Micromanufacturing International articles reflected many of the verbatims provided. Please go to my website http://www.rgrace.com under the “Articles” tab to access the articles. The results were also presented in several international conferences/webinars throughout the year, including at the COMS World 2021 in October. My intention in annually creating and publishing this “one of a kind” MEMS Commercialization Report Card has been and continues to be, to enhance the awareness in the MEMS community as to the barriers to the rapid and successful commercialization of MEMS and the recommended strategies/actions to overcome these barriers. And to use an old saying…” If you cannot measure it…you cannot fix it”.
Since you are one of a very small group of individuals whom I have asked to participate because of your long-standing and significant role in the commercialization of MEMS, I would greatly appreciate your valuable contribution to this project at this time. Kindly include your “grade” for each of these subjects / critical success factors using the form below for the calendar year 2021. In addition, I would greatly appreciate your verbatim comment on the subject(s) that you consider changed the most and the rationale for this in the spaces provided.
Kindly send your completed form to me no later than the close of business Eastern extended to Wednesday, June 8.
I plan to present the results in several international publications, conferences, and webinars. For those who respond, I plan to send you a copy of the final report of the 2021 Report Card. In addition, you will be entered into a random drawing from the respondents for a chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card. I wish you good luck.
Thank you for your kind consideration of my request.
