In BreakTest, concrete and soils test results are recorded on a long running table list on their e-forms (the list is broken up to fit letter-size pages for reporting). This continuous list simplifies managing the test results.
However, the list can get quite long for field density tests, and there are times when you need to work on certain field density test rows, and skip others. For example, you may need to assign proctors to only a set of applicable rows. Or if you’re approving the test results, you may need to skip certain rows due to inaccurate information. More purposes for this capability follows later in this article.
Properly tracking changes to deficient test sheets reduces follow-up and review cycles.
An effective lab test data tracking process:
- Saves non-billable time for engineering staff
- Improves report quality
- Streamlines process flow
BreakTest can save you over 90% of the effort spent on sending test reports manually:
- Saves ~1.5 months per year for 50 daily tests
- Savings compound if more than 50 test samples per day
