EC: Power Xpert Reporting v3.0
Software - Diagnostics: Power Xpert Reporting aggregates vast amounts of critical power data into easy-to-understand reports, so that facility managers and maintenance personnel can better monitor their systems to reduce energy costs and improve reliability. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.
Out-of-the-box, Power Xpert Reporting allows customers to see a clear representation of their power and energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, power quality and more, all in a crisp graphic format, providing critical diagnostic information to make decisions that improve cost reducing efficiencies, power reliability, and enhance sustainability initiatives.
A powerful software, Power Xpert Reporting helps track and compare systems within facilities and across the enterprise. New standard and custom reports help customers take advantage of government incentives, avoid penalties and reduce their carbon footprint. Power Xpert Reporting now provides 13 ready-to-go report templates with intuitive graphics and charts to help customers understand and manage critical power systems and energy flow as a whole. The newest version of Power Xpert Reporting adds standard baseline and dashboard report templates, along with custom reporting capabilities. Additionally, Power Xpert Reporting is tested and configured to use with VMware high-availability clusters for critical systems.
New baseline comparison reports measure actual power consumption over time against a baseline. The report helps verify that buildings' energy systems are installed, calibrated and perform as planned. Additionally, data is normalized for facility size, location, weather, and other environmental variables. These baseline reports support LEED certification and help customers take advantage of government incentives. Further, customers now have the flexibility to create custom reports with user-selectable or virtual attributes and complex formulas for custom data. New custom reports allow users to create virtual devices to calculate data input based on existing real-world devices, reducing equipment costs, while providing power monitoring capabilities.

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.
