aSa Rebar Field Placing Solutions on Display at World of Concrete ‘14
Oct 22, 2013 - LAS VEGAS, NV
LAS VEGAS – aSa’s newest software module, to be showcased at World of Concrete January 21-24, 2014, in Las Vegas, helps rebar installers to easily manage placing information — from the initial estimate to the last bar installed at the jobsite. In addition to viewing the full-featured software, visitors can see a prototype mobile application for automatically updating installation status from the field.
aSa Field Placing is designed around the concept of “placing codes.” A placing code is simply a way to identify takeoff items based on placing characteristics. Slabs, foundations, beams, and columns are common examples. Material totals from aSa Estimating automatically load into Field Placing’s Set Up Placing Rates screen, where companies estimate the labor required for each placing code.
Percent Placed and Allocate Time screens let users easily enter the week’s hours into the system and associate those work hours with the appropriate placing codes. Future versions will use mobile applications for updating installation status in real-time from a phone or tablet device.
Because Field Placing is integrated with the rest of aSa’s Complete Rebar Solution, placing companies can easily get big picture information, such as which placing codes have been detailed, shipped, and installed. The module contains a variety of helpful reports, highlighted by the Weekly and Job to Date Listing, which shows percent placed information for the current week and for the entire project on the same page.
Also featured at WOC will be aSa’s complete line of rebar products, including Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology; material and heat tracking solutions; and equipment automation.
