Use of BIM jumps during past 12 months
Study shows that that the rate of BIM adoption has increased significantly over the past 12 months.
RSMeans Business Solutions , a division of Reed Construction Data, recently conducted a comprehensive study to determine how quickly the industry is embracing building information modeling (BIM) and discovered that the rate of adoption has increased significantly over the last 12 months.
In this study, an RSMeans project team conducted surveys and interviews among several architectural firms across the United States, focusing on BIM adoption rates, how adoption varies between large and small architectural firms and the effects on productivity.
Out of the offices sampled that use BIM, 96% indicated they adopted it within the last 12 months and nearly half of all respondents estimate that all projects will use BIM within one to two years.

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.
