Clean commissioning requirements

This seminar provides an example cleanroom, explains the different standards that can have an impact on cleanroom commissioning, and presents an outline for commissioning the example cleanroom.


Many of the most complex and contamination-sensitive manufacturing processes require cleanrooms. Cleanrooms require more stringently controlled environmental conditions and have substantially more commissioning testing equipment than a typical office building. This seminar provides an example cleanroom, explains the different standards that can have an impact on cleanroom commissioning, and presents an outline for commissioning the example cleanroom.

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.
