The Panoptix software development community by Johnson Controls monitors and displays energy and water use in real time to improve energy efficiency and sustainability in operations.
The Panoptix software development community by Johnson Controls provides building data, tools, and support to developers to create and market applications that address energy efficiency, sustainability, and operations. Five initial partner-developed applications will be available for purchase in the Panoptix marketplace, which provides a global venue to sell applications to building owners and operators. Applications were created by and are available from EnergyAi, Lucid Design Group, EnergyPoints, FirstFuel, and T4G. Lucid Design developed the Building Dashboard application in Panoptix, which monitors and displays energy and water use in real time on touchscreen kiosks and the Web, providing a sustainability engagement platform for occupants, building visitors, and the public.

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.
