A-Z Manufacturing & Sales has a web page dedicated to "useful, fun, and manufacturing info." For manufacturers and engineers (www.azmfg. com/links.html), this is a handy reference. Included are truly useful links to a conversion calculator ("ensgtrims to inches to meters to..."), patent information, SIC Codes, and others; fun links to the "Cartoon Laws of Physics," "Hypertext Humor Archives," "Miscellaneous Metal Factoids," and of course, "The Dilbert Cartoon Archives." And there are other business links as well. Although there are some broken links here, this is still a useful reference website.
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.
