POY Finalist: Forklift monitoring system
Finalist in Material Handling Systems in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The LCD601 is a color LCD access and monitoring system for forklifts and equipment. The LCD601 maintains OSHA regulations by automating daily required pre-shift checklists and by scheduling driver recurrent training.
Damage from reckless driving is dramatically reduced because the device tracks impact and speed-logging abuse, creating driver accountability. Maintenance scheduling on the device insures PMs are done by a date or hour meter reading. Wireless text messages shown on the LCD display can be sent to individual vehicles or the entire fleet, further improving the productivity of the handling operation.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
