Configure this: MicroMain teams for Facilligence for Web-based maintenance management
Asset and facility management software provider MicroMain is partnering with enterprise asset management (EAM) specialist Facilligence LLC to deliver highly configurable maintenance management software to customers requiring Web-based systems with no client footprint.
This software also meets the needs of organizations that require integration with building automation systems, accounting systems, and other business systems.
MicroMain software also will be provided by Facilligence for customers who require capital planning, drawing-enabled space planning, and extensive mobile options.
“Facilligence software is highly configurable, as is MicroMain software,” says Pat Conroy, President of MicroMain. “For example, security options in Facilligence—which were developed for government and corrections industries—can be set at a very granular level regarding rights and roles. With MicroMain, organizations can utilize specific functionality for different maintenance needs—such as wireless work orders, parts inventory using handhelds, and asset tracking with mobile PCs.”
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.
