There is a very nice article on MTConnect at Machining Journal for July 10th, 2012 by Brian Lane.
In the article, Brian states, "In its 2012 Benchmarking survey, Modern Machine Shop (MMS) asked its Top Shops about methodologies and technologies they are using to stay ahead of the curve. In addition to trends in cutting and precision technology, high-tech solutions to machining challenges and the use of advanced CAD/CAM software for part programming, MMS, in its survey, discovered that over half of the Top Shops are operating Ethernet-connected machines. Meanwhile, 8 percent of these shops are using the MTConnect communications protocol."
