Gersil N. Kay commented on “ASHRAE 90.1—2007 and beyond”

 

“Standards 90.1, 189, LEED and other energy conservation groups, are not considering that lighting, of all the disciplines, is the easiest with which to save energy. In the zeal to conserve, sometimes productivity is not equally increased. People will always find ways to circumvent unwanted or impractical energy restrictions.”

 

Peter Hetzel commented on “Earning LEED 2009 Water Efficiency credits”

 

“v3 is a definite improvement in reducing water consumption—but it is going to require time to educate owners on the still numerous options, benefits, and challenges. Every drop is sacred and v3 water efficiency will get more of us thinking that way every time we flush a urinal or not. Thanks for the article.”

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.
