New looks for Website, Plant Mail!

01/06/2006


PLANT ENGINEERING has a fresh new look for both its newsletters and for its Website at www.plantengineering.com .

Plant Mail begins weekly distribution this week, providing readers with up-to-date information about issues and events in manufacturing right to your desktop. Also launched in January is the new www.plantengineering.com to provide our online audience a faster way to get information and use the vast resources of our magazine in new ways.

“More than just a re-launch, we wanted to add some tools a plant engineer can use every day,” said editor Bob Vavra. “Our readers aren’t always at their desks, but they need access to information quickly, wherever they are. Our Website puts those tools at their fingertips.”

Among the new tools you can find here at www.plantengineering.com :

The Engineer’s Resource Guide: The centerpiece of PLANT ENGINEERING ’’s new Website, the ERG will ultimately archive the last 10 years of PLANT ENGINEERING ’’s outstanding technical stories, organized by subject area. “We will also be working with the top suppliers in the industry to aggregate case studies, white papers and other research, again organized by topic, to make finding information quick and easy,” Vavra said. “This will allow ERG to deliver knowledge efficiently to our readers.”

Web polling: The new Website also features more interactive opportunities than ever before. “Our poll questions will appear on the site, and the results will be reported each month in PLANT ENGINEERING ,” said Vavra.

Interactive comments: With just one click, readers will have a quick link to comment on issues they see in print,” Vavra said. “We welcome that feedback, which will appear on the site and in the magazine.”

Innovations: Our exclusive Internet Connection provides you with the fastest way to get information from the industry’s top suppliers, and the Products section in ERG offers the latest innovations from the pages of PLANT ENGINEERING.

Breaking news: The new site will also deliver breaking news in our expanded news section as well as provide a quick way to read the latest issue of the magazine online. “Information is more portable today than ever,” said Vavra. “We wanted to make PLANT ENGINEERING ’’s information not just portable, but immediate and robust.”

We welcome your comments on the new format to BVavra@cfemedia.com

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
