EC: FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) HMI software
Software – HMI software: FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) from Rockwell Automation is an HMI for supervisory-level monitoring and control applications with a distributed and scalable architecture that supports distributed-server/multi-user applications, giving maximum control over information. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice honorable mention.
FactoryTalk View SE 6.0 software from Rockwell Automation features time-saving design enhancements, including a new extensive graphics library, enhanced color animation capability, and access to a multilanguage font library. The new graphics library is the result of a partnership with Software Toolbox, Inc., that integrates Symbol Factory v2.5 into FactoryTalk View Studio. The software can directly reference tags created for a controller and comes with a factory-default option, reducing troubleshooting to increase uptime. FactoryTalk ViewPoint further enhances the system’s interoperability by providing remote access for Web browser-enabled devices.
FactoryTalk View SE 6.0 now supports the 32-bit version of Windows 7 and SQL Server 2008 and is the first release to have VMware-Ready status. This latest version of FactoryTalk View SE also offers FactoryTalk Alarms and Events server redundancy, safeguarding a common, consistent view of alarms and events occurring throughout an entire FactoryTalk system. FactoryTalk View SE software provides the backbone for a visualization solution that eases development and maintenance time and offers the critical real-time production data manufacturers need to make informed business decisions.

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.
