MATT System Worksheet Instructions & Guidelines For Field Technicians


The information provided for the worksheet guidelines are for the purpose of aiding field personnel (project engineers, inspectors, designers, samplers, testers) in proper preparation and completion of forms for MATT System entry.

Since MATT System forms are the basis of data entry in the computerized test reporting system, it is imperative that these forms be accurately completed in their entirety. The computer has no thought center of its own and can only process data that is coded in numbers, letters, or a combination of both. Therefore, if any required character is left blank or is filled with improper data, the project record will be incomplete, inaccurate, or the input will be rejected.

The field inspector or technician, through project engineer direction and accountability, is the person directly responsible for MATT System Identification forms generated on a project and for the validity of the data on these forms. This responsibility must be faced with determination and a desire for accuracy to ensure that his/her supervisors have the proper data necessary to accept or to reject materials used on a project.

Not only must the coding on the forms be accurate, but the inspector/technician must also be very precise in such areas as cross-referencing and in the remarks fields because these areas are extremely important in materials certification.

Most of the MATT System forms are a combination of identification and workcard in order to reduce paperwork and to increase efficiency. It should be noted on these forms that some entry spaces have short vertical tic marks, indicating information to be entered into the computer, while some entry spaces are blank lines, indicating non-computer entry.

This area explains the proper recording of information, detailing only the areas for which field personnel are responsible. The correct entry of this information is critical for the electronic handling of data. Additionally, the information recorded in non-computer entry spaces is also required for Department records and is important to Department engineers involved in the construction and evaluation of materials and testing. Therefore, it must also be completed.
