McGladrey study to look at manufacturing efficiencies
Plant Engineering readers can receive benchmarking data for participating in report
Plant Engineering readers have been invited to participate in a global study on operational efficiencies in manufacturing.
Since 2006, the McGladrey Manufacturing and Distribution Monitor has helped companies address operational efficiencies, growth strategies, exporting best practices and more. Monitor results and analysis are shared with industry associations and government policy-makers to help these groups understand the challenges and concerns facing our industry today.
By participating in the survey, Plant Engineering readers will receive:
- A customized benchmark report comparing your responses to that of your peers across the country, as well as to groupings of companies similar to your own.
- Data to help you plan and execute your strategic objectives.
- An industry advocate who will provide insights to congressional and administrative representatives on your behalf.
Please complete the questionnaire to the best of your ability, based on conditions at your company. Submit your completed survey by March 22 so your responses can be incorporated into the final analysis. It should take only about 15 minutes to complete.
Survey results will be published as part of Plant Engineering’s 2013 Mid-Year Report in August, along with an analysis of data from McGladrey experts.

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.
