ASHRAE launches online discussion platform
ASHRAExCHANGE provides a place for ASHRAE members and non-members to post and generate discussion on either a general or specific project topic.
ASHRAExCHANGE provides both ASHRAE members and others in the industry with an online platform for real-time discussion and information exchange for design, construction, operation, and support of the built environment.
The platform provides a place for users to post and generate discussion on either a general or specific topic. With thousands of ASHRAE members and non-members checking the ASHRAExCHANGE 24/7, the hope is the online discussions will generate plenty of thoughts and comments from many knowledgeable people.
Anyone with access to the Internet can view posts, comments, and messages on the ASHRAExCHANGE at any time. No registration is necessary, and neither is the need for special software, as everything is Web-based.
Users who want to become active participants and be able to post both initial messages and responses to posts are required to register. Volunteer moderators will be on duty to ensure ASHRAExCHANGE is being used properly.

2012 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.
