How LASTRADA Adjusts to Michigan and Other State's Regional Requirements

LASTRADA quickly adjusts to differing state and regional requirements, including Michigan. Michigan is unique in its use of banker's rounding and volumetric checks when determining asphalt and aggregate compliance with a specification. Watch this Lightning Demo to see how LASTRADA's two simple selections direct the software to calculate according to Michigan banker's rounding and other features unique to Michigan specifications.

Michigan uses banker's rounding and unique volumetric checks to determine if asphalt and aggregate complies with its specification. In this Lightning Demo, I'll show you LASTRADA's two simple selections that direct the software to change calculations to Michigan banker's rounding and other features unique to Michigan specification.

To apply Michigan banker's rounding for aggregate production and tests, you select the check box here and LASTRADA will apply this rule to the following tests. For asphalt mix design or productions, which we call declarations, you will select Michigan state in the regional settings.

When required to use the Michigan DOT mix design Gse, add the value here in the declaration and LASTRADA will use the provided Gse for certain volumetric calculations. To apply the Michigan no sieving loss procedure, press this button here to reapportion the sieve loss per Michigan.

Thank you for watching. For more ways, LASTRDA can simplify your work, check out our other lightning demo videos at resources, or visit our contact page to speak with one of our engineers.
