BIM for power control system
Emerson Network Power’s ASCO Power Control Systems has added building information modeling (BIM) capability and can monitor and protect multiple-genset power systems.
Emerson Network Power’s ASCO Power Control Systems has added building information modeling (BIM) capability that can reduce the time typically required for installation and approvals, and avoid expensive rework. The BIM capability is available with all ASCO Power Control System lineups, which start, synchronize, parallel, monitor, and protect multiple-genset power systems. A lineup comprises a master control section and one or more single- or dual-generator sections. They are built to order and fit to order. The 3-D digital model represents each section in a lineup for a customer's project. The model shows height, width, and depth dimensions; clearance zones; locations and directional swing of doors; circuit breaker placement; and cable-entry cutouts. The information helps consulting engineers ensure adequate thermal spacing between the lineup and other equipment, clearance and placement for lifting devices for circuit breakers, and proper conduit routing.

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.
