Just over half of the 527 respondents said their companies choose equipment having both speed and flexibility while another 35% report their companies now choose equipment with only flexibility in mind. Only 7% of the respondents felt their companies selected the highest-speed/limited flexibility equipment. The survey was conducted in late '96 and will be available to all registrants at the Forum.
