Between the 23rd and 25th of February 2011, the first LASTRADA User Conference took place at our offices in Berlin.
PDF Conference Programme

On three days, LASTRADA users from materials producers and independent test houses visited various lectures and seminars on topics of their respective fields. The lectures and presentations for attendees from test houses focussed more on laboratory process control and resource planning, whereas material producer's representatives concentrated on technical questions, for instance on the LASTRADA support of reclaimed asphalt quality control.

The guest lecture of Thomas Behle from Hohenloher Asphalt Plants on the European regulations on control and usage of reclaimed asphalt was a highlight for many attendees. Not only gave Mr Behle a well structured explanation of the practical implications of the EN 13108-8. But he also described the support of LASTRADA for stockpile control and the determination of the maximum usage in asphalt recipes.

Besides presentations, lectures and seminars, there was much room for open discussions. The most joyous feedback for us was the demand of making this user conference an annual event. Also, we are thankful for the opportunity to meet many people in person, who we only knew from the phone before.

The Integration of Asphalt Quality Control with Sales and Production - on the Pivotal Role of an Integrated Laboratory Information Management System

Abstract

Intra-company communication has always been one focal point for the realisation of efficiency and quality gains. Nonetheless, because of being equipped with a stand-alone QC-software, the laboratory, i.e. quality control, has never reached its full potential as a service provider for the production management, the sales department and the controlling department.

We would like to present the details and effects of an automatic exchange of information between a centralised and integrated laboratory system on the one side and the plant control and financial software system (Enterprise Resource Planning system), on the other side. In three parts we will illustrate the practical consequences of QC integration:

  1. Existing and practically applied interface variants between the
    laboratory system and ERP systems,
  2. Existing interfaces between laboratory system and plant
    control systems and
  3. A co-operation between software developer JPSC and
    asphalt plant manufacturer Ammann to develop a standardised
    interface between the integrated central-database system
    LASTRADA and the AS1 plant control system.

Some of the questions answered are: How can a bi-directional interface which transfers mix recipes and production data between laboratory system and plant control system add to sustainable and efficient use of constituents? What key information can be provided for the technical management to increase production quality if quality data from the laboratories and production data from the plant control systems is combined in a central database? In terms of quality assurance, what are the benefits of an automatic interface that provides the bill of materials and key properties of new mix designs for the sales and controlling departments?

20.-21.02.2008:    7th International Conference on Sustainable Aggregates, Asphalt Technology and Pavement Engineering Liverpool, UK


LJMU - Asphalt Mix Design We would like to thank all guests of our stand for your interest in our laboratory system and for insightful discussions, especially about the new asphalt production control regulations. The conference at large was as informative as it was a pleasant and friendly experience - well organised and led by a very courteous host. We are looking forward to next year's asphalt conference at the LJMU!

To all those who were not able to attend, we would like to offer an individual presentation. Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange an appointment!

23.-29.04.2007:    Immense interest at bauma 07

bauma 2007 - Concrete Software With more than 3,100 exhibitors and half a million visitors at this year's international trade fair for the construction industry, Bauma 07 in Munich proved to be a record event.

Together with Toni Technik, we were placed in Hall C1, Stand 104. On one side high quality testing machinery, on the other side the complete solution for laboratory information management: a perfect match for a successful cooperation stand.

The trade fair also saw a great deal of interest in the depth and breadth of functionalities the LASTRADA solution for laboratory and information management has to offer.

The latest module designed for GEOTEXTILES now completes the LASTRADA range, which also includes previously developed testing modules for CONCRETE, ASPHALT, AGGREGATES, SOILS and CEMENT.

Many visitors were particularly interested in LASTRADA's ASPHALT module and made the most of the opportunity to see what working in accordance with the upcoming asphalt standard EN 13108-21 would look like.

The LASTRADA Construction Site Terminal, still in the development phase, and the LASTRADA Asphalt Info Terminal, which is already available, were highlights from our research and development department. The latter Terminal has been specifically designed to inform company management about the status quo of factory production control. The Construction Site Terminal is a communication platform for the laboratory, the contractors and the awarding authority. Its primary purpose is to allow contractors to document quality control procedures on an on-going basis on site. But building owners, developers and authorities also benefit from more reliable quality data and more trustful business relationships.

Dr. Jung & Partner AG is now looking back on a successful trade fair and looking forward to working with a lot of new LASTRADA users!


We would like to thank Toni Technik for a cooperation that exceeded all our expectations.
