AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager 5.3
The AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager 5.3 release expands end-user machinery monitoring by adding Smart Wireless vibration, new autoplot capabilities and advanced alarm analysis and management. Users can gain new insight into the operations of their critical machinery through the integration of wireless vibration information from the CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter. In addition to wireless vibration diagnostics, process data from any WirelessHART-enabled transmitter can be imported into AMS Machinery Manager, which combines diagnostics from wireless devices with other machinery health information to deliver a complete picture of equipment health and reliability.

Important device diagnostic information can be correlated from multiple sources, including online machinery monitoring systems, portable route-based analyzers and wireless devices. With this comprehensive picture of equipment health, users can identify alerts that could impact production and drive to the root cause of persistent problems.
New alarm limit functionality allows users to reset machinery health alarms for in-depth analysis of impending failures. Plot data is displayed sequentially or as one plot at a time for both online and portable vibration data. Users can also access case histories, automated diagnosis and logged machinery health notes to support decision-making.
A new infrared thermography module supports Fluke Ti55 IR images. With this new import functionality, users can view and configure Fluke visual and thermal images. Improved IR reporting formats provide user-selectable items for inclusion within the reports.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
