POY Finalist: Lubrication management
Finalist in Maintenance Software in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
LUBE-IT provides a clear and easy-to-use interface giving maintenance personnel a comprehensive view of all lubrication activities, schedules, and workloads. By simplifying a typically cumbersome process, LUBE-IT streamlines the creation of optimum lubrication routes and schedules. Each week, the software generates a dynamic list of pertinent tasks for each route so lubrication responsibilities of individuals are always clear and known. These lists can be printed or synchronized to mobile devices and contain complete details about each lube point, including precise location and the quantity and type of lubricant to be applied.

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.
