Data Analysis, Manipulation and Viewing Options
Once the test is complete the following measurements can be quickly determined: volume, length, maximum width, maximum height, height at the maximum width and width at the maximum height .
These numbers are then further manipulated to automatically calculate and display the Specific Volume of the product based on the total weight (Volume/product weight) and the volume yield of the bread based on the weight of the flour used (Volume/100g flour).
The scanned data can be viewed in both 2D and 3D representations to allow comparisons with previous archived measurements. Within the 2D sectional view, additional automatic and manual measurements can be made on chosen intervals or 'slices' of the test data [2/3]. 3D views of the product are rotatable in all planes providing flexibility of viewing for visual comparison and presentation .
All data is saved in spreadsheet files for easy access and analysis . This data can be viewed in or exported to Microsoft Excel.
Data can be sorted by any column header and statistics adjusted according to new data selection.
Results can be quickly emailed by clicking on the Mail To button  which automatically opens up a message window in Outlook and attaches the active window .
A Report template is available into which your data can be dropped and automatically positioned with test data fields or modified using full Report Editing tools and saved as a .pdf file .
Alternatively, images and data can be copied and pasted into other applications .
