the 7 readings match the results of the calibration for the C40 concrete mix towards 80 percent of nominal strength (32 mPa) being reached within ~ 3 days and full design strength (40 mPa) within less than one week (average after ~ 5 days) they, too, are prove for a very consistent concrete quality

If it is a new burette, the titrator will ask which titrant is being used and its nominal strength. When performing a standardization of that titrant, these values, along with the date and time, are stored on the chip.
US combat doctrine maintains that units at less than 90% of their strength are limited in what missions they can undertake, and that units at 75% of their strength should be withdrawn from combat operations until they are restored to their nominal strength on paper.
