Multivariate analysis engine for embedding, integration
Real-time software platform can drive continuous and batch processes.
Umetrics , producers of multivariate data analysis software, has released Simca-Q, version 12 real-time multivariate calculation engine for continuous and batch processes.
Simca-Q integrates into a users’ process software, generating predictions based on off-line Simca-P+ Version 12 models. These real-time quality assurance and fault detection utilities reportedly can provide cost-savings and improved process performance.
Ideal for OEM embedding and integration into other software systems, the Simca-Q engine’s customizable interface allows users to include the calculated predictions into existing data platforms, from commercial databases to dynamic XML Web pages. Applications include inferential sensors, rapid screening and discovery applications, process monitoring, advanced process control, and quick response lab test validation.
Simca-Q Version 12 engine is the heart of the suite of off-line and on-line software. This suite is used in research, development, and manufacturing to convert large datasets into more useful information. Simca-Q provides efficient analysis coupled with Umetrics’ expertise, training and support, to deliver multivariate solutions for process monitoring and quality assurance.

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.
