Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Pilots E-Ticketing Solution

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet used Fleetwatcher's E-Ticketing solution on two research projects during the 2018 paving season in an effort to investigate the effectiveness of the electronic ticketing process in combination with both intelligent compaction and infrared temperature monitoring.  The two projects were KYTC's initial attempts to begin developing a system wherein the majority of material monitoring is done electronically, allowing a KYTC inspector to focus on a more visual inspection of the material being placed.

"How E-Construction Can Increase Your Efficiency and Your Bottom Line" by Lisa Cleaver, ForConstructionPros.com, Feb 22, 2016

Technology is invading the jobsite at every angle today and for good reason. Going paperless can improve business operations and decrease the amount of resources needed to get the job done. In the highway construction industry, electronic lettings have been standard operating procedure for the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) for many years. Recently, the agency partnered with a contractor and a software provider to bring the e-construction process right to the point where the asphalt truck arrives at the jobsite to unload.

e-Ticket and Materials Delivery Verification Technology on Display at Upcoming Utah e-Construction/3-D Engineered Models Conference

A revolutionary new materials delivery solution developed by Earthwave Technologies for the asphalt paving industry has garnered the attention of Department of Transportation officials for its potential to replace paper tickets with accurate and verifiable electronic tickets that provide the proper documentation for deliveries to highway and road-building projects.

Utah’s Department of Transportation is hosting a workshop on e-construction on March 1-2 in Salt Lake City to cover the latest progress reports from leading states. A presentation by Greg Mulder, Director of Iowa DOT Office of Construction and Materials, will highlight Iowa’s use of e-tickets and e-document submittal using Fleetwatcher’s Materials Delivery Solution in 2015.

Initially developed for paving contractors to help reduce trucking costs and optimize cycle times, the solution was embraced by Mulder and his team as viable technology to replace paper tickets following a successful 90-day ‘proof of concept’ of the system with a local contractor in Ames IA. The solution and process worked very well for tracking and verifying the product life cycle from the certified plant to installation.

ETICKETING SHOWS PROMISE OF SPEEDING PROCESS AND IMPROVING ACCURACY AT ASPHALT JOB SITES

It seems that most everything is going electronic these days, and for good reason. Going paperless can improve business operations and decrease the amount of resources needed to get the job done. In the highway construction industry, electronic lettings have been standard operating procedure for the Iowa Department of Transportation for years. More recently, the e-Construction process removed time-consuming paper shuffling right up to the point where the asphalt truck arrives at a job site to unload.

“That’s where we’ve hit a snag in the electronic process,” said Greg Mulder, director of the Iowa DOT’s Office of Construction and Materials. “Each truck driver still carries a paper load-out ticket that is collected by the Iowa DOT inspector on the jobsite and used to document the details of the delivery.”

Working with Manatts Inc.’s Ames office, Mulder and his staff recently piloted a “proof of concept” project and developed what they think could be the next step in a paperless, efficient process for documenting asphalt deliveries to highway construction projects.
