Some have a hard time believing that walking around a pile with an iPhone or flying a drone capturing pictures could possibly results in reliable information about the volume of a pile without touching it.
Stockpile Reports ACCURATELY calculates volume.
What you really want to know is, “is my inventory right?” Measurements rely on consistency, density, pile management, site condition, but system accuracy is usually the smallest variable in your assessment of accuracy. So we’d like to broaden the discussion to include considerations affecting repeat-ability, consistency (getting the same measurement each time).
You probably know what it’s like to rely on different people to mark piles and get different measurements each time, so let’s review why, with our system, you WILL know your numbers when it comes to volume.
How do I know the measurement is true?
Simple geometric equations on a broad scale result in high confidence. Continue reading “It’s Easy, But Is It Accurate?”
