Improve the scalability of measurement and control systems
NI LabVIEW 2012 by National Instruments includes ready-to-run starting points for a breadth of LabVIEW applications and access to new training options that help improve the quality of measurement and control systems.
NI LabVIEW 2012, the latest version of the National Instruments system design software for engineers and scientists, was introduced Aug. 7, at the company’s annual conference and show, NIWeek. Users gain ready-to-run starting points for a breadth of LabVIEW applications and access to new training options that help improve the quality of systems. New features aim to accelerate the success of any measurement or control system.
“Building a system fast is important, but it’s equally important to build it right – that means using solid architectures and proven development practices,” said Dr. James Truchard, president, CEO and co-founder of National Instruments. “New features and resources in LabVIEW 2012 promote training and drive development practices to help our customers deliver high-performance and high-quality systems in less time, thereby minimizing development and maintenance costs.”
LabVIEW 2012 features include:
· Templates and sample projects
· Self-paced online training
· Improved stability
· New tools for high-performance analysis and advanced image processing
· Productivity enhancements powered by the user community
· Mobile apps for display and control on an iPad

2012 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.
