Earthwave has introduced the Dynamic Yield Calculator (DYC) to the FleetWatcher platform, which automatically determines mat thickness and project yield. This new functionality accounts for materials on hand and in transport, paver speed and more. The feature is also integrated with data from scale tickets, KPIs and other project information to determine when the project will be completed and how much material is needed to do so.
Variables such as material density, width and length can be adjusted to reflect actual project parameters. Users can see tons laid, linear feet paved, square yards paved and mat thickness. The program also shows tons in transport, projected linear feet, projected square yards and projected mat thickness of inbound materials.
With this new functionality, contractors can control mat thickness helping manage the amounts of materials applied based on specific requirements. Contractors will also know how much material is required to finish the project, so they can avoid ordering more material than required for completion. DYC allows contractors to avoid keeping the asphalt plant operating in case extra materials are needed to finish.
“Customers who have tried Dynamic Yield Calculator found it easy to use and were pleased with the immediate reduction in wasted tonnage and plant time,” said FleetWatcher founder Larry Baker. “We’re unlocking the value within the data to eliminate guesswork and allow contractor to better plan their projects.”
