4 What is SiteManager?Jointly developed, comprehensive construction management software product used by transportation agencies that covers the complete construction contract (award through completion) and materials management processes.Cost EstimationDecision SupportMaterials ManagementP,S&E EstimateProposal PreparationConstruction ManagementBid LettingContractor ManagementContract Award

6 Functional Areas Contract/Contractor Management contract (project, category, & item) & reference definition (item master, vendors, funding sources, & DOT offices), contract funding, stockpiles, force accounts, disputes/claims, subcontracts, document submission, checklist event & key date definition & tracking, and many more functions
7 Functional Areas (cont’d) Contractor paymentsautomatic estimate generation based on authorized work; automatic adjustments for retainage, stockpiles, materials deficiency, and liquidated damages; full manual adjustment capable; automated approval work flowContract modifications (i.e., change orders)quantity changes, time extensions, scope of contract; automated approval work flow
8 Functional Areas (cont’d) Project-oriented civil rights monitoringDBE compliance; EEO monitoring; wage & labor automated tracking; on-the-job training automated tracking and payment; contractor payrollsSystem administration and configurationUser security; group security; code tables; system operational parameters for defaults; template facilities
9 Functional Areas (cont’d) Materials managementMaterial definition; automated material associations to contract items; approved lists (samplers, testers, calibrated equipment, welders, qualified labs, producer/suppliers, etc.); sampling and testing requirement definition; standard AASHTO tests & unlimited user-definable templates; tracking of contract sampling and testing requirements
10 Functional Areas Field data collection Daily Work Reports (DWR) - incl. weather, contractor staff & equipment, DOT staff & vehicles, extensive remark capabilities, work item progress, & force account progress; DWR templates; record attachmentsMaterials sampling & testing
11 Configurable Features Generic FieldsReport Template Facility (RTF)programming language developed by Info Techused for the development of reports, import and export processes, etc.Attachmentsallows execution of plug-ins, OLE, or URLs from many areas of applicationSecurity (access controlled by user groups)
13 Configurable Features Daily Work Report Templatesassociated with contract itemspart of daily inspection processCustom List & Records Templatesassociated with contractspart of contract records processMaterial Test Templatesassociated with contract materialspart of sampling process – allows entry of test results
15 SiteManager Licensees 23 Transportation Agencies, including New Brunswick(California and Ohio have Evaluation License)
16 SiteManager Use ~ 23 Licensees 19 in full production9 Construction and Materials10 Construction only3 in process of implementing Materials3 in process of Implementation2 implementing Materials with Construction1 Licensing
17 SiteManager Laboratory Information Management System (SM LIMS) Integrate material management and lab managementRestrict access to samples and testsBased on qualifications and lab unitsAssign default tests
18 SiteManager LIMS Queue Concept Controls ‘Who’ does ‘What’ and ‘When’ Define sample testing workflowInclude alternative workflowsInclude test-triggered eventsEstablish material sample “chain of custody”Keeps record of all labs that received sampleKeeps record of edits to test data
19 Workflow between SiteManager’s Materials Management and LIMS Components
20 Hierarchy of LabsNote: Regional lab may also be a district lab or a residency.Mention contract authority.LIMS uses a hierarchy of labs to restrict access to samples and tests based on qualifications and lab units.
22 Recap ~ LIMS Features Receive at Destination Lab (Receiving Dock) Indicate sample received at lab buildingStep may be omitted for field tests or samples shipped directly to Lab UnitReceive at Lab Unit (Lab Technician)Indicate sample received in lab for testingStep may be omitted for field tests performed when the sample is logged.
23 LIMS Features Maintain Test Queue (Lab Manager) Assign qualified testersCancel tests or add more testsAssign due datesIndicate priorityMonitor sample/tests progress
24 LIMS Features Enter Test Results Queue (Lab Technician) Enters test results and marks test as completeLIMS moves test to Review Tests queueReview Tests Queue (Lab Supervisor/Manager)Tests approved, or re-queued or order re-testWhen all tests approved, LIMS moves sample to Review Samples queueSample won’t appear in Review Samples queue until all associated testsare marked as complete in the Review Tests queue by the Lab Manager.Returning a test to Review Test queue removes the entire sample from the window.
25 LIMS Features Review Samples Queue (Product Owner) Reviews all sample tests to either return a test to the Review Tests queue or order re-test orAuthorizes sampleSample status updated from LIMSView-only Sample dataControl access with group securityDisplay sample and test data/remarks
26 LIMS Features Customize window layout and data views (User) Choose column and sort orderEasy-to-use filters tailor data displayedView / compare test data in a gridAudit and trackTrack sample and test status in LIMS workflowView prior test resultsAudit changes made to user records
27 LIMS Features Configure the LIMS system (Administrator) Use established reference data from SiteManagerLIMS system parameters and code tablesDefault and required tests assignment per material sample typeGroup material products for authorizationLIMS alternative workflow and triggered eventsLIMS window security
28 Key AASHTO Trns•port™ Benefits National user group of other transportation agencies results in sharing of solutions and costsDesign incorporates “best practices” of participating transportation agenciesLicensees acquire a comprehensive, state-of-the-art system at a fraction of the development costMaintenance & continuing enhancements are responsibility of AASHTO
29 Key AASHTO Trns•port™ Benefits Together with other Trns•port products, provides an integrated “cradle to grave” solution for construction design and administration life-cyclePromotes agency standardization and greater accountabilityEliminates many manual processes and activitiesStreamline auditing – electronic records
