Modeling water heaters
A. O. Smith Water Products Co. offers 3-D models for specifying engineers via Revit.
Water Products Co. is the first in the water heater
industry to offer specifying engineers and architects complete access to 3-D
the 3-D Revit models to be inserted into their building model or drawings.
product family file allows the selection of the individual model and its associated
database of critical installation information. Now, specifying engineers can
easily integrate an A. O. Smith product into their building designs. Future
plans include making the A. O. Smith files available from the Autodesk "Seek
Site" where product models can be directly accessed from within the Revit
models are currently available for the Cyclone Xi (BTH), VF Boiler (VW / VB),
Master-Fit (BTR), and the Gold Series (DRE) product families. Engineers simply
open the file on the website, and then choose the model they want to specify.

Annual 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.
