Manufacturing today requires mobility. But mobility can bring with it a complex supporting infrastructure. It requires networking hardware and software, devices to connect to the infrastructure, applications to run on the devices, and processes and procedures to work effectively, safely and securely.
In the wireless mobility webcast:
- Mark T. Hoske, content manager and editor with Control Engineering, will explain mobility trends based on Control Engineering research and discuss the types of mobile engineering applications available among more than 225 categorized in editorial coverage.
- Harry Forbes, senior analyst at ARC Advisory Group, will explain basic wireless mobility infrastructures, types of hardware and software needed, and the challenges and advantages wireless mobility offers to end-users, providing examples.
- A question and answer session will follow the presentations, for a total of 1 hour.
- This RCEP-accredited webcast offers an opportunity to earn a professional development hour (PDH).
Webcast participants will learn:
-Wireless mobility trends and applications
-Major types of wireless infrastructures and their applications
-Types of industrial hardware and software applied for wireless mobility
-Some examples of successful end users processes, procedures, and applications
Control Engineering Wireless Mobility Webcast (register here) live broadcast will be Tuesday, April 29 at 11 a.m. PT /1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET, (and it will be archived thereafter).

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.
