    • Research programs aimed at improving production technology, solving long standing production problems, and providing better manufacturing economies.
    • Exchange of technical and production knowledge through Society meetings, plant visits, and encouraging private conversations.
    • Issuing various reports and bulletins covering research and new technology.
    • Quality guidance and Certification of producers.
