‘Predictive Maintenance Technologies’ is topic for new LCE course
Learn how to overcome inefficient maintenance management
The Life Cycle Institute , the learning source for optimizing asset reliability and performance, is now accepting registrations for its newest course: Predictive Maintenance Technologies . This five-day course is designed for maintenance professionals and any person responsible for justifying or conducting duties related to a predictive maintenance program.
Ineffective maintenance management costs U.S. industry an estimated $60 billion yearly. Even more disturbing is the impact that ineffective maintenance has on a company’s ability to produce cost-effective, quality products. Predictive maintenance (PdM) programs are formed to eliminate unnecessary maintenance, improve quality and increase capacity. Most predictive maintenance programs use vibration monitoring as the key component. To be successful, a comprehensive program must include other monitoring and diagnostic techniques. During the Predictive Maintenance Technologies course, participants will determine which predictive technologies to use and how to apply them in an effective predictive maintenance program.

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.
