Plant environments are alive with changes as companies upgrade existing installations, maintain equipment, and add new machinery to leverage the latest technology. Because of these constant modifications, ongoing vigilance is required to keep your plant running smoothly, efficiently and safely.
To respond quickly and effectively to shifting needs, you must have ready answers to questions like these:
- What does your plant look like today?
- What’s surrounding the leaking pipe you need to fix?
- As you plan the installation of a new sprinkler system, is there an electrical tray blocking the way?
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.
