Abstract
This is a task report of effort directed toward a pilot study on one noise intensive industry (the fabricated metal products industry) 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 exploring the cost and cost/effectiveness trades relating to the options of adding enclosures to machines or buying quiet machines.
