One of the most popular uses for www.PlantEngineering.com is the ability to review archived stories and articles from past years. Some of the best strategies and ideas are the tried and true methods.

Yet the Website grows every day with the addition of the latest research from major suppliers, manufacturers, trade associations and study groups.

Among the new studies now available at www.PlantEngineering.com :

  • An ASQ study on how a paint shop in India improved its quality and customer service by successfully implementing a Six Sigma strategy in the operation

  • A study by Lawson on how to combine Enterprise Asset Management and Enterprise Resource Planning to achieve the best of both strategies. The paper looks at integrating EAM and ERP throughout the enterprise

  • A NASA white paper on how to integrate Fieldbus devices to an existing DCS system. The paper discusses the reasons for the upgrade and an analysis of the project’s outcome

  • A study of the redesign of the lighting grid in Gillette’s Andover, MA facility. The result was an annual $110,000 reduction in electricity costs while creating a brighter work environment for employees in the manufacturing space.
