I don't know that there is anything so direct available. But a number
of people on this list have stated that their companies make the
availability of correct simulation models a condition of any
contract for parts. This certainly suggests that sales can be
affected by the availability of IBIS models.

Obviously, this works better if the buy is a large one. But I would
expect the cumulative effect of many smaller companies demanding
IBIS models for parts would eventually move even the largest supplier
in the right direction.
