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

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.
