This is a task report of effort directed toward a pilot study on one noise intensive industry (Fabricated Metal Products) to more clearly define the machinery noise problem of that industry, the technology available to reduce the machine noise levels, the technology that needs to be developed and the most cost/effective/beneficial means of providing federal research, development and demonstration participation. Specifically, this task was directed toward estimating the R&D costs associated with developing the noise reduction technology to allow the quiet machinery, needed by this industry, to be designed and fabricated. This study concludes that 94 million dollars can be saved through a closely coordinated RD&D program over a loosely controlled program for developing and implementing quiet machinery technology typical of each machine type.
