Uptime Institute announced its Accredited Tier Designer program schedule. The Accredited Tier Designer program limits the attendance at each session due to the intensive nature of the course material and the emphasis on topical discussions. The course provides instruction to design professionals, in the context of real-life designs, on practical application of the Tiers, including common issues and misconceptions.

 

The benefits of the Accredited Tier Designer endorsement are:

 

Save money

• Reduce internal and client costs by minimizing lost design due to misunderstood Tier criteria

 

Optimize schedule

• Shorten design interval by limiting iterative design—design directly to the Tier objective

 

Expand client list

• Differentiate your organization while competing for projects with a specific Tier objective

 

Enhance client satisfaction

• Properly apply the Tier concepts to deliver on-time, on-budget, and Tier-certified

 

Improve skills and qualifications

• Professional development hours as appropriate

 

The 2010 Accredited Tier Designer schedule is:

 

April 14 to 16, Chicago

 

Sept. 22 to 24, London

 

Dec. 1 to 3, Atlanta

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.
