“This study will provide a look at how manufacturing really works from the people who do the work on the plant floor every day,” said Bob Vavra, editor of PLANT ENGINEERING . “We’re grateful for IBM’s support of this important research, which will provide useful insight for manufacturing leaders and policy makers on the way manufacturing has changed since 2003, when the study was last completed.”

The theme of the 21st annual Maximo World users conference is “Innovation That Matters.”

The event formally opens with a welcome reception on Sunday, July 22 at 6 p.m., but the International Connection Forum and a Roundtable discussion on mobile networking will both take place on July 22 from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

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.
