The GO app is a combination of a mobile interface and a free app available in the App Store and Google Play. Once the app is installed to a mobile interface, users can copy profiles to new pumps, generate installation reports, request status data, adjust pump settings, and receive alarms and warnings. The app also provides a live data feed from the pumps onto the screen.
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.
