Data collection and organization just got easier with a recent management software update. The MnDOT (Minnesota Dept. of Transportation), www.dot.state.mn.us, and The Transtec Group, www.thetranstecgroup.com, are easing the construction management process with Veta 3.

Data collection is increasing for highway construction as equipment can now gather increasing amounts of information. The original Veta was created to solve this problem and is a free ICDM (intelligent construction data management) tool that standardizes, displays, analyzes, and reports data collection from IC (intelligent compaction), machines that monitor realtime asphalt or soil compaction.

Veta also monitors paver-mounted thermal profiling technologies, which collect asphalt surface temperatures directly behind pavers. The software is used in construction and is required in more than 20 state DOT IC specifications.

Veta 3 adapts to the changing needs in today’s construction and includes features such as new analysis options and a redesigned user interface. On top of that, Veta 3 offers a paver-mounted thermal profile analysis, the ability to define multiple sublots and filter groups, alignment file enhancements, cumulative distribution analysis, and actual coverage analysis.

The update gives users greater control of construction data and allows more detailed analyses, as well as the option to create reports for agencies to determine contractor pay factors. In total, construction teams using Veta 3 can expect a smoother and more communicable process.
