P & ID design resource available from ISA
Instrumentation engineers, engineering companies, and anyone else who develops pipe & instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) have a new resource: ISA 5 P&ID Clip Symbols Version 2.0 CD.
Instrumentation engineers, engineering companies, and anyone else who develops pipe & instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) have a new resource: the ISA 5 P&ID Clip Symbols Version 2.0 CD. Also see: Learning piping and instrumentation drawings; How to read P&IDs .
Symbols appropriate to various ISA standards are converted to clip art format and furnished in .DWG, .WMP, and .DXF file formats. This lets them be easily used in MS-Visio, AutoCAD, and other computer aided design (CAD) platforms and spreadsheet programs.
The CD will help engineers design standards-conforming P&ID with greater accuracy, consistency, and speed. Symbols are provided for the following standards:
> ISA 5.1-1984 (R1992) Instrumentation Symbols and Identification;
> ISA 5.2-1976 (R1992) Binary Logic Diagrams for Process Operations;
> ISA 5.3-1983 Graphic Symbols for Distributed Control/Shared Display Instrumentation, Logic and Computer Systems; and
> ISA 5.4-1991 Instrument Loop Diagrams.
Order online or by calling (919) 549-8411.

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.
