The HART Communication Foundation  will host a free one-day event for end users on June 27 (8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.) at the Marriott Westchase hotel in Houston, Texas. The event, HART: Benefits Today and Into the Future, includes presentations by end users and suppliers, a panel discussion, three technology workshops, and a networking reception. This event is free for users, but seating is limited and registration is required.

The event features two user presentations that demonstrate the actual cost savings and benefits achieved using HART technology in real-world applications. A presentation by Dow Chemical Company, Delivering Value through an Instrument Reliability Program, will be presented by Christopher Garcia, Instrument and Electrical Technology Leader, and Shadrach Stephens, Electrical Engineer. A presentation by We Energies, Smart Instrumentation-Past, Present and Future, will be presented by Todd Gordon, Computer Instru­ment Technician Leader.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
