How to Simplify Aggregate Adjustments Using Receiving Inspection in LASTRADA™


Done manually, aggregate proportion adjustments take up valuable time and leave too much room for mistakes. In LASTRADA, Receiving Inspection speeds up and simplifies the process of estimating plant adjustments while eliminating the risk of errors.

How to Utilize Receiving Inspection 

The Aggregate QC Module captures plant data and other relevant data from the perspective of both the aggregate plant and mining site.

After the relevant information about the aggregate sample is captured at the mining site, including plant location, plant configuration, the ledge, the conveyor, and the sampling locations, plant technicians simply enter the information about the aggregate into the corresponding Aggregate Receiving Module. They do this from the perspective of the plant, not the mining site. Asphalt plants enter data into the Asphalt Plant Aggregate Receiving Module, and concrete plants enter data in the Concrete Plant Aggregate Receiving Module.

When aggregate proportioning adjustments are needed, the technician or the engineer simply refer to the Receiving Inspection for the information they need. Data is easily located by referencing the Receiving Inspection from the perspective of the plant using the aggregates.  The Receiving Inspection only displays information relevant to the selected plant, thus providing a clean and simple way to ensure the quality of data for each plant.


Making proportion adjustments is a regular part of managing an asphalt plant, but a manual process for gathering
adjusting and updating data is time-consuming and there's too much room for costly errors.

In this lightening demo I'll show you how LASTRADA receiving inspection simplifies the process of estimating plant adjustments while mitigating the risk of error. Here is LASTRADA aggregate QC module where we test aggregates at a mining site and we capture information about plant configuration, the ledge, the conveyor sampling locations and other relevant information about the production of that aggregate sample.

The aggregate receiving modules for both asphalt and concrete give technicians the clean way to enter information about the aggregates at either the asphalt plant or the concrete plant where the material is being received, because technicians keep the data organized for each asphalt plant in the asphalt plants aggregate receiving module, and the concrete plant in the concrete plants aggregate receiving a module engineers can simply find the information they need to make adjustments by looking at the receiving inspection for the plant that they're working at both concrete and asphalt. In this case, I'm looking at my half inch crush aggregate gradations, so I can make an asphalt plant adjustment. The aggregate receiving modules for each plant have only the information relevant to that specific plant available for the engineers or technicians analysis, which provides a simple way to ensure quality data for each plant.
