Nice article by Marvin M. about engineers and the role of social medias. Will you agree with his vision?

Introduction

Traditionally, engineers and technicians met in conferences, workshops and seminars. Luckily, especially for some of us in the third world, the internet, and consequently social media, has infused all aspects of our lives, including careers.

Social media and blogging have changed how people communicate across platforms and by extension, how we conduct our business. However, though there are a number of social media platforms out there, each bears different levels of usage to an engineer. The article highlights the strengths of various platforms in creating a peer-to-peer avenue for professions in different countries.

Blogging

Many people attest to the point that engineers are paid to think, not type. Well, I counter that by saying that ideas are best explained in the text, and, of course, in electrical engineering, diagrams.

Electrical Installation Guide – New version – FREE Download Now

Electrical-Installation-GuideDesigner, Consultant, Contractor, Panel buider, Facility manager, Student, teacher, Standardisation or certification person,… you all are forced to respect IEC standards daily for the security of your installations. Yet, the writings about the current regulations are complex and constantly evolving. You often encounter difficulties to put these standards into practice; you lose a lot of time – so then money, deciphering writings from the regulations.
 
Faced with this review, what do you do? You still propose the same and only types of installation that you master. You only rely on the documentation of the products offers without an overview of your installation, so without knowing if all the equipments match to carry out the services. Or, even worse, you are not sure that the installations you propose entirely respect the most recent versions of the standards – which involve potential risks on goods and persons…

Save time and money by choosing the right cooling system for your electrical enclosures for FREE

More than 50% of failures in electrical enclosures are due to the cooling system! The automatic control of temperature is an essential intervention which guarantees the reliability and service life of your equipment.

Unfortunately, for lack of means, time or expertise, you don’t do calculations which enable you to know and manage your enclosure’s temperature automatically. As a result, the devices in enclosures overheat, they breakdown and make you spend a lot of time and money in fixing your mistakes. Your clients are dissatisfied and endure operating losses that can reach several millions of dollars in some sectors.

Faced with this issue, the worst solutions are: to install a cooling system at random, using the one you use for all your machines from habit, or simply to not install a cooling system at all.

A good reminder thanks to Mr Vilfredo Pareto (Italian)
Business management, Engineering management,  Personal productivity

“To maximize your personal productivity, realize that of the many things you do during your day, only 20 percent really matter!  Identify and focus on those things. What do you do with those that are left over? Either delegate them or discontinue doing them.
Work Smart – identify your 20% now!”
