The Plumbing Manufacturers Institute held its first Demand Forecasting Seminar Feb. 24-25, which presented a model forecasting process to the 40 participants. This process enabled attendees to gauge their own companies' approach, as well as understand forecasting basics and performance metrics.

PMI's second Codes and Standards Workshop drew some 60 people to the sessions on Feb. 3-4. This session and the initial program last July were both sellouts.

These two-day workshops are part of a larger education initiative to provide PMI members and the plumbing industry with current information on issues and functions crucial to the industry. Those who attended the workshops received certificates of completion.
