With CT3 systems, there is no need to have two different software vendors supporting your Weigh Station versus your log accounting activity.  The CT3 Weigh Station module is fully integrated with the Log Management System (LMS), and it is easy to use.  In order to minimize errors and speed up processing, an emphasis has been placed on reducing the amount of hand entry of data.  A scanner can be used to read bar-coded Numbers on Load Tickets.  Then, by matching the Load Numbers with Ticket Book assignments in LMS, Logger and Timber Sale information is instantly available to print on Weight Tickets as loads pass over your weigh scales.  Gross and Tare Weights are electronically captured and Weight Tickets are automatically printed.  Weight Scale business flows smoothly and trucks are not held up because of "system" problems.  If inconsistent data is entered, the process will not delay truckers, but it does highlight accounting problems so they can be resolved immediately. 

The Weigh Station module is designed to electronically capture Load Number and Weight data from an integrated (networked) Weigh Station.  The data is then integrated with source and product information in LMS.  Sample Frequencies can be established in LMS based on the source of the wood and the product (load sort).  This determines whether a particular truck load needs to be 100% stick scaled.  

Address and insurance information may be entered for each Trucker. Tare (or "empty") Weights are stored by Truck.  A Pool Size and Tare Frequency is defined for each one.   An average Tare can be calculated for a Truck, using the existing pool of Weights.  The Pool Size and preset Tare Frequencies determine whether an Actual Tare Weight is required for a given Truck load.  If a Tare weight is required, the weight ticket is updated when the truck comes back to the scales after unloading. 

Multiple Weight Ticket copies can be printed with the appropriate distribution marked on each copy.  Tickets clearly indicate any Scaling or Tare Weight requirements.  Weight Ticket data is edited in the Weigh Station module.  If it is complete and consistent, it can automatically be posted to the main LMS Database for payments.  However, if any ticket information is missing or invalid, that ticket will not be posted for payment, until any errors are corrected.  This insures that LMS volume reports and transactions are complete and accurate.
