Many companies use a stand alone program to manage equipment outside of their testing software, which adds an extra step and another place to complete work.

LASTRADA's integrated Equipment Management Module allows you to manage your equipment and all of your testing in one place, and it improves overall efficiency by preloading calibration constants into their respective tests automatically.

How Equipment is Managed in LASTRADA

For those who are responsible for managing or calibrating equipment, the Equipment Management Module is set to automatically launch when LASTRADA is first opened, any time equipment is ready for calibration. 

When an item is selected from the equipment list, a new window opens with all of the information necessary to manage equipment for AASHTO R18. This detail includes:

  • specific equipment-related information
  • predefined calibration procedures
  • calibration intervals and alert periods
  • equipment photos
  • equipment documentation, such as manuals and data sheets used for calibration
  • historical calibration results

Additionally, LASTRADA automatically saves calibration constants and uses them in test methods. For example, when testing for aggregate specific gravity, the latest pycnometer data (weight and volume) is automatically loaded into the testing module.  When necessary, the data that is pulled in can be manually overridden.
