This is a summary report of a pilot study on one noise intensive industry--Fabricated Metal Products (SIC 34). The primary objective of this study was to ascertain if enough information exists in open literature and in private and public sources to allow an assessment of: the machinery noise problem of an industry; the technology available to reduce the machine noise levels; the technology that needs to be developed; the potential ability of the industry to pay for the noise reduction technology development; and the most cost/effective/beneficial means of providing federal research, development and demonstration participation.
