Asset sustainability software
EAM Asset Sustainability Edition enterprise software allows users to integrate energy consumption and emissions management into their asset management practices. The software factors energy consumption into total asset performance; it also factors in an asset's consumption of wage commodities: water, air, gas, electricity and steam. The application tracks consumption of individual assets in real time, evaluates data against user-defined conditions and alerts users when assets exceed acceptable performance thresholds.

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.
