PREREQUISITE: You must have a Probe or Delivery Cycle Monitoring (DCM) license and the associated sensor assembly installed and configured on your vehicles to utilize this report.

Streamlining the batching process without sacrificing ready-mixClosedIngredients mixed by a concrete batch plant and delivered to the site in trucks ready for pouring. quality requires significant amounts of information. The COMMANDassurance ProbeClosedA probe device mounted in the side of a bin to measure the moisture content of aggregate materials such as sand. and TrackIt Delivery Cycle Monitoring Drum Rotation Sensor fulfill the roles of information gatherers, and this report organizes that data into actionable data.

The BatchClosedThe total amount of concrete or asphalt that is being or has been batched for delivery. Summary reportClosedA report that summarizes and/or condenses collected occurrences. provides a ticketClosedShort for “delivery ticket,” which is printed and given to the driver. Also called a tag or docket. The ticket includes, at a minimum, the product(s) ordered and the delivery address. It can also include the amounts of materials batched to form the mix. In the past, producers sent copies of the delivery ticket with prices as invoices; now tickets and invoices are two separate documents.-based overview of batch results and slumpClosedSlump is defined as the number of inches (or millimeters) concrete will sag, or slump, when a special test cone filled with the concrete is turned upside down and the cone pulled off the concrete. In other markets this is called ‘consistency’. Consistency for concrete can be stated different ways. Examples are: slump, flow, workability. We mostly use ‘slump’. conditions for concreteClosedA mixture of water, sand, cement, rock, and sometimes additives. batches. Utilizing the probe, you may gather information specific to how much time a driver spends in batch loading statusClosedOne of several possible statuses for a truck. A truck in the Loading Status is in the process of being loaded with material., productClosedGenerally refers to concrete, aggregates, asphalt, and other products that go into a mix. This includes any item that goes into the concrete, such as accelerators, retarders, superplasticizer, fiber mesh, color, delivery charges, after hours charges, surcharges, and temperature control charges. quantity and water added, and average values of slump readings. The Drum Rotation Sensor can supply information about the batch's Water/CementClosedA fine-ground powder that acts as a binding agent of concrete and hardens when mixed with water. Cement is only a component of concrete. ratio, age, and water added values.

This report proves invaluable when searching for potential issues or inefficiencies in the batching process. This also allows you to monitor how the probe or drum rotation sensor enables process improvements over time.

You may use the Include Voided Tickets search parameter to allow you to see data for batched loads with tickets that were voided. From the voided ticket report data, you may research which factors might have affected the quality of the loadClosedThe total amount of concrete or asphalt that is being or has been batched for delivery. and address those issues to prevent future voided tickets. Additional filters are PlantClosedA production plant or material storage location., EquipmentClosedAll machines used as a means of production on a construction site or at a batch plant., Product, JobClosedA project that orders and tickets are grouped under., and OrderClosedIndividual requests for specific materials that are associated with a job. Some jobs may consist of multiple orders of varying products..
