May 27, 2021 - Exclude Invalid Specimens from Report Calculations

Sometimes a defective specimen or a flawed test inappropriately indicates a failed sample. Now you can exclude a specimen's results from the sample report calculations.

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT

Not all specimens are created equally, even though they all come from the same sample. When a single specimen is obviously flawed in some way, or there was a mistake made during the test, that one bad specimen should not disqualify the entire sample.  Acknowledging a bad specimen while producing acceptable results from the other specimens in the sample can help to avoid costly investigations and core drilling.

HOW IT WORKS

After testing is complete, you can use ForneyTools to exclude a specimen.  This does not remove the specimen from the report, but marks it as excluded and it's results are not included in strength calculations.
