“Our goal is to be a full-service and long-term partner with our customers, using our experience and knowledge to work together in solving challenges, reducing costs, minimizing risks and increasing productivity and profitability,” says Raj Batra, president of Siemens industry automation division. “The tour is a testament to our customer-first attitude and will bring products and solutions to our customers’ doorsteps.”

This division includes many types of measurement and control products:

• Level
• Pressure
• Temperature
• Flow transmitters
• Valve instrumentation
• Regulators and relays
• Process protection instruments
• Weigh feeders
• Belt scales
• Analytical system integration
• Gas chromatographs
• Continuous gas analyzers, and
• Laser analytics.

These types of products can be found supporting a host of industries like water, power generation, oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, glass, cement, and metals.

In addition to showing a broad and innovative portfolio of products, the showcase highlights Siemens Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) with a comprehensive display that demonstrates how information can be shared seamlessly to improve customer operations. The measuring success showcase features a control room, process area, instrument shop, and analytics shelter all based on Siemens technology. The tour will travel across the country, engaging customers with Siemens process measurement experts.

Relating this interaction with the process automation community is a major motivation for the recently launched ‘Measuring Success’ blog. This Siemens blog features weekly articles from process instrumentation and analytics specialists addressing real-time concerns within the process industry. It allows feedback from end users, opening a dialog of two-way communication for problem solving, technical issues, and best practices from industry experts.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
