The Challenge A common challenge that occurs in many ready mix operations is the lack of visibility into the properties of their fresh concrete during the delivery cycle. There's a plethora of things that can go wrong from the time the materials are produced until they are placed, and having insight into an issue enables producers to take action before the issue becomes a disaster. The Solution Wayne Davis signed on with Command Alkon's concrete telematics solution, Load Assurance, to gain insight into the properties of their fresh concrete while in transit to their customer. The solution analyzes and communicates slump, temperature, volume, water additions, W/C ratio, drum rotation, and direction for each and every load to the driver, production, dispatch, and quality control personnel. This solution improves their operations because having real-time concrete property data from the drum ensures fewer rejected loads, less time spent product testing, and more flexibility for reuse of concrete left in the drum. Their goal was to offset the cost of the Load Assurance product with a reduction of lost loads and time savings. The Result One of the beauties of Load Assurance is that installing the hardware is straightforward.
