In January 2009 North American print edition Control Engineering re-introduced an original comic to its pages. It is called "Engineering in Balance," by Mark T. Hoske, editor in chief, and Tom Rybarczyk, senior computer illustrator. Control Engineering acknowledges that engineering-minded readers, no matter where they work in their organizations, need to laugh, as they continue to find ways to make themselves more valuable to the world. A comic was monthly staple in early editions of Control Engineering in the 1950s. This one from the January 2009 issue shows how a common language sometimes can divide marketing and engineering minds.

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.
