Ventilation product selection program
Greenheck's Computer-Aided Product Selection Program (CAPS) provides access to ventilation products.
Greenheck’s AMCA-certified Computer Aided Product Selection Program (CAPS) provides access to full-scale Autodesk Revit models of Greenheck’s commercial ventilation products, and includes product descriptions, application information, comparison tools, dimensional drawings, payback analysis, and detailed product performance for all Greenheck products. CAPS files contain configuration-based information for each completed product selection. This specific information drives each family type to create a complete representation of the product including key selectable options and accessories. Because CAPS families are application based, changes made to a Greenheck product selection will provide updated data for each configuration in CAPS, re-export the Revit content, and easily update each product mark to the latest configuration by simply reloading the data in Revit. Each mark will then update to the latest configuration details and performance.
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.
