CFE Media announces Apps for Engineers, a free “app of apps,” providing an interactive directory of approximately 60 mobile applications useful for engineers working in industries and topics covered by Control Engineering, Plant Engineering, and Consulting-Specifying Engineer publications. These mobile engineering applications, selected by CFE Media personnel, are available in the Apple Computers App Store and in the Android Marketplace, helping CFE Media subscribers, and others using Apps for Engineers to do their jobs better, and save users time, providing a “pre-sort” of relevant mobile engineering applications.
Apps for Engineers is loaded with various calculators, catalogs, file viewers, measurement tools, and more. Version 1 of Apps for Engineers will allow the user to sort by “Category” or “Type,” navigate to a list of apps under each of these menus, view an app profile for each, and link to either the App Store or Android Marketplace to download the app. Based on their own experiences with the apps that they download, users also can use the app to link to a location on CFE Media websites that will allow them to post comments or reviews and view the comments of others.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
