18 SCS900 Operation  SCS900 has 2 levels of operation –Basic features  Use an existing site and calibration  Measure, check and navigate work modes  Designed for the less skilled operator  Each operator is assigned their own login type  Simple interface  Easy to use with 3 icons to control software  Starts with main screen  Limited to GPS support  Advanced functions  Manage control points and Site Calibration  Setup a Base  Internet connection –Full features  No limitations

19 Basic features The 3 Icons  Setup Menu  Work Modes Menu –Measure surface –Check Plane –Navigation  Settings Menu –Dependent on Work Mode

20 What can SCS900 do? –Measure  Topo Surface – As builts  progress and stockpile volumes –Check  Elevation / grade and laid material thickness –Navigate  To a point or line –Review  Interrogate the design  SCS900 has 4 basic functions

21 Typical Tasks - Measure  How much concrete in this pad? –Use Review Design features to Calculate volume by area and thickness.Calculate volume by area and thickness  How much pipe for this run?  How much silt fence in this location? –Use Review Design features to measure a distancemeasure a distance  How much material is needed to finish the current lift? –Use Measure Surface to record points when standing/walking/drivingMeasure Surface

22 Typical Tasks - Check  What slope is this batter/embankment? –Displayed on the X-Section view of TabletX-Section view  What's the Elevation here and what Cut / Fill do I have? –Always displayed in Basic mode  What construction details on this trench?  Where (roughly) is the existing electrical cable in this area?  What type of manhole at this location  What type of pipe in this trench –Check on DXF design drawing loaded as background filebackground file  How much longer are we going to need this excavator / grader / compactor / trucks / etc? –May be resolved by driving along design and getting a rough idea of volumes

23 Typical Tasks – Navigation/Stakeout  Stakeout site features –Embankments –grading limits –Utilities –Pads –Structures and Manholes.  Stake writer –SCS900 will always display a useful stake writer report that shows the operator exactly what needs to be written on the stake  The Side Slope & Catch Point stakeout function – allows you to control the stakeout of complex side slopes in the field, without having to compute them first in the office. It adjusts automatically to live ground elevations enabling you to find the exact catch point location.

24 Advanced Modules

25 SCS900 Road Module  SCS900 Road Module is targeted at all heavy and highway contractors involved in the development of major highways  Also addresses the needs of DOT Highway inspectors  Applications for grade checking, materials thickness checking, staking road features, catch points and side slopes with or without subgrades

26 Features of the road module  Supports a complex road model that is accurate everywhere. Road model can comprise multiple road jobs.  Very efficient data flow from Office to field and through to finished reports  Allows the user to select where and what they want to stake out  Supports all international methods of stakeout, with comprehensive reporting of results  Simplifies the stakeout and checking process  Automates the QA / QC and reporting of highways measurement and stakeout

27 Advanced Measurement Module  Improvement to measurement functions  Improves productivity by automating functions  Add intelligence to data being recorded  For any user that utilizes the Measurements menu –Targets those frequently performing As-Builts

28 Advanced Measurement Module  Advanced Feature Coding –Codes allow automation when interfacing with BC  New Intuitive User Interface –Quick pick list improves speed in filed  Attribute Support –Store more information on the measured data  Intelligent Feature Codes –Code knows if it is a point or line, part of surface or not  Code Management –Group, sort, and create quick pick list for codes  Media Points –Photos associated with points  Cross-section Pickup –Allows cross sectional pickup along roads  Offset Point –Record offset location when unable to get to it  Offset Line –Record more than one line simultaneously

29 The Bottom Line  Productivity gains  Cost savings

30 Productivity Gains  On the same page –Surveyors, grade checkers, supervisors and machine operators – are all working with the same up-to-date information.  Forward planning –Plant and materials requirements can be regularly checked and scheduled  No waiting –Topsoil striping and cut/fill can begin without waiting for stakeout or machine control  Adding value to your workforce –Supervisors take over basic survey operations and volume calcs –Leading hands and foremen can plan ahead –Surveyors can focus on high level tasks  Improved communications between field and office personnel

31 Improved Productivity  Collective data management –Everyone working on the same data –Everyone has access to the data –Everyone can collect new data  Empower site operatives (DIY) –No waiting for data from engineers –No waiting for set-out or check from surveyor –No waiting for someone else's report

32 Cost savings  No hard copy drawings  Travel time, down time, fuel costs and rework can be avoided  No staking and re-staking –Machines require GCS system –Cost of Survey crew –Cost of materials –Cost of delays waiting for re-staking Quote: “To purchase survey equipment for 4 survey crews (required for staking) and pay wages over the 3 year life of the project would cost approximately $AU4 million dollars”

33 Cost Savings  Its Monday and you need to check grade on an area you think you’re finished with  The surveyor can’t make it until next week… –How much money does down time cost you? –How much money do idle machines cost you?  SCS900 gives you the ability to do the work yourself!

34 Closing statement SCS900 empowers your team with the information and tools to: –Plan ahead –Resolve issues quickly –Take ownership of the job The benefits can be measured in: –Increased efficiency from a higher value workforce –Reduced survey costs –Reduction of delays and rework –Better forward planning
