Krinkle Concrete QA® is a comprehensive mobile app (iOS and Android) and reporting tool that enables Concrete Quality Managers to easily record, manage and report on their concrete pipe and box culvert Quality Assurance (QA) programs. The mobile solution comes out-of-the-box with all of the tests, reference documents and guided questions needed to track concrete Production Work Orders. This system includes complete detailed QA inspections of the concrete mix designs as well as the final products; namely concrete pipes and box culverts. All of the guided QA data collection can be completed from your smartphone or tablet, while reports can be run both from your smart devices as well as from your PC. It is a comprehensive system that is easy to learn and easy to use. Keep your concrete product company in compliance and easily track each facility and plant’s concrete production process with Krinkle Concrete QA®’s mobile QA management system.

KEEP TRACK OF THE ENTIRE CONCRETE QA PROCESS

The system is designed to avoid overburdening your structural engineers, mix, design engineers, schedulers and plant managers. Once the system is populated with your most common structural and mix design data, a Production Work Order for a given plant can quickly be assembled. A user simply selects the Facility/Plant Manager, final structural and mix design, as well as a few points from the sale and a Production Work Order is made. Your quality assurance department can then perform tests and collect data against that specific Production Work Order to ensure a complete and DOT compliant QA program following the nation’s best practices.

GUIDED INSPECTIONS KEEP YOU COMPLIANT EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

Concrete and concrete product QA inspections include Concrete Batch QA, and D-Load testing to name a few. Product inspections include Hydrostatic, three-edge bearing, off-center joint and vacuum tests. Pipe and box culvert inspections include all the pre-pour, reinforcement pre-pour, and post-pour dimensional inspections required. Even the most audit-happy customers (like your Department of Transportation) will be satisfied with the recorded quality of your QA process and your final product records.

REAL-TIME ALERTING

“Real-Time Alerting” enforces a fundamental requirement of Concrete QA that often gets overlooked or simply missed. All QA requires that any measurement is taken or test performed, in which the user records the ACTUAL results, MUST BE COMPARED to the EXPECTED results. Krinkle Concrete QA®’s Production Work Order has contained within it all the EXPECTED results. As soon as any QA person begins to perform measurements on any test and enter data into Krinkle’s dynamic forms, the form itself is always comparing the data entered to the expected data for that product – in real-time. At the moment any data entered is outside of allowable tolerances, the system warns the QA tech. This allows them to immediately give feedback to the production line and possibly even stop them before the error continues to propagate through their production line. The potential savings, rapid error correction and quality assurance that this brings to bear cannot be understated.

COMPREHENSIVE CONCRETE PRECAST REPORTING

Krinkle Concrete QA® showcases a number of professional, client-facing reports, all of which can be run in Excel, Word or PDF format, at the touch of a button. These reports are designed to meet and exceed the nation’s best practices, which are expected by today’s state Departments of Transportation (DOT) as well as your private construction clients. Beyond just our comprehensive reporting expected by your auditors, Krinkle Concrete QA® has developed an additional and unique type of report, known as “Management by Exception.”

MANAGEMENT BY EXCEPTION REPORTS

Management has a lot of data to review every day to make sure that things are going as they should be. Their day can easily fall into a state of data overload and things that should be caught early can begin to fall through the cracks. Oftentimes, these issues (only visible when reviewing large quantities of data) go unnoticed until a critical situation arises as a result. Nobody wants to find out what they missed after its effects have already occurred. Krinkle Concrete QA® can be configured to alert managers via daily emails and even real-time text messages when certain conditions arise that they really need to know about. This approach frees them from needing to spend endless hours scouring through handwritten reports. Krinkle’s reports that follow the rule of “Management by Exception” only show the issues that the built-in automation is looking for. This limits what a manager has to review and helps keep them focused and efficient. No longer are they always required to dig through data, looking for problems in a haystack.

With one click, the system can generate a thorough report on all its inspections and tests, making it very easy for you to always be audit-ready.

USE AS A STAND-ALONE SYSTEM OR INTEGRATE INTO YOUR EXISTING SYSTEMS

Krinkle Concrete QA® stands on its own and requires no other system to get your operation fully functional, reportable and auditable. It guides the process of quickly establishing Production Work Orders and assures manufacturing quality and documentation. Like all products from Krinkleapps.com, it can also be integrated with other systems if ever required.
