ARC Advisory Group offering free asset lifecycle management workshops at ISA EXPO
ARC Advisory Group will be offering an extensive set of free educational sessions at the ISA EXPO taking place Oct 6-8 in Houston.
Operators of process plants and other capital-intensive industrial facilities will have a unique opportunity learn about the latest techniques and technologies for getting most out of those assets at the upcoming ISA EXPO taking place in Houston Oct. 6 - 8.
In addition to the usual exhibitor booths and workshops, ARC Advisory Group will be offering an extensive set of free educational sessions.
These workshops will be held in a theater adjacent to ARC's Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM) Pavilion (Booth #2655) on the exhibits floor.
These educational workshops, presented by ARC analysts and other industry experts, will cover topics as operations and maintenance (O&M) information handover, process control performance benchmarking, cloud computing, integrated engineering tools for ALM, and multi-plant synchronization.
For instance, the O&M Information Handover Seminar (Oct. 7th from 10:15 AM-Noon) will report on activities to develop guidelines for more effective transfer of information from EPCs to owner/operators. The ultimate goal is to accelerate operational readiness and increase the own-r/operator's ability to maintain, operate, and improve the performance of manufacturing assets throughout the entire asset lifecycle. Workshop participants will also learn how to identify and unlock the "hidden assets" that drive ultimate asset performance.

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.
