Video: Web-based software monitoring
Thin-client, web-based software allows monitoring from anywhere, as shown in this NIWeek video demonstration.
Web-based software monitoring: NI Web UI Builder serves as front end, in this example, for natural gas pipeline monitoring. The resulting PlantGard software from Scientific Process Solutions loads from the browser thin-client, without installing a runtime version, allowing monitoring of any system from anywhere with web access.
The web services will be among NI’s emerging software as a service (SaaS) offerings, according to Diya Mukherji, National Instruments engineer, at NIWeek 2010.

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.
