Maintenance survey to look at ISO55000 standard
Asset management, implementation priorities for manufacturing will be part of study questions
With the release of the ISO55000 series of standards shining a spotlight on asset management, a new research study has been created to reveal insights into current and future asset management practices, investment priorities and implementation challenges in the manufacturing sector. Participants are asked to complete industry demographics to put this data in a useful context.
Information will be aggregated to reveal insights and trends however no individual information or organizations will be identified in the resulting reports.
Participants may also choose to identify themselves in order to receive a free copy of the summary report that will be issued. No contact data will be provided to third parties.
The study is sponsored by the Association for Maintenance Professionals, Reliabilityweb.com and Uptime Magazine. Participation is estimated at 5-10 minutes total time.

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.
