29 AGGREGATES MANAGER July 2014 Supply by Therese Dunphy, Editor-in-Chief SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS The right technology can not only streamline production processes and costs, it can also enhance safety. AggFlow Design and Manage, from Bedrock Software, LLC, is a hybrid program that allows workers to work on-line or off-line and to share projects with other users at will. Simulation can be used to determine optimal production capacity for a particular equipment configura- tion; then users can input field sample data to compare what the operation is actually producing to its theoretical capability. This information can then be used to identify and eliminate bottlenecks and inefficiencies. BedRock Software, LLC | Dexter + Chaney's Spectrum Equipment Management software includes fea- tures for preventive maintenance, equipment tracking, and a mobile app that works on Apple and Android mobile devices. The cloud-based system works with the company's Spectrum Construction Software, while the app allows field staff to enter equipment information from the site and synchronize automatically with the software. Dexter + Chaney | Cantech is using wireless technology to control loading and materials handling processes from the cabs of mobile equipment. Typical applications include discharging material from quarry bins (which can include indication of the bin levels), positioning radial conveyors to fill bins on a ready-mix plant or railhead, and initiating batching of concrete from the loading machine. Cantech | Logimine S.A.S. has developed openQUARRY software for smaller scale fleet supervi- sion. The free software interfaces with the company's EZ range of on-board display terminals and is designed to enhance work productivity, machine use, and safety. It enables managers to remotely control production in real time — from the position of the vehicles, their speed, loads, cycle time, tire pressure, etc. An alert system provides instant notification when a vehicle is misused, exceeds speed, or is overloaded.
