Product   Specifications   are   created   for   each   distinct   product.   Numeric   Tests,   Descriptive   Tests   and   Conditions make   up   each   Specification.   These   categories   are   further   split   into   Mandatory   and   Optional   requirements. Numeric   Tests   are   defined   for   each   of   the   measured   parameters   of   the   product.   Information   on   the   target   value, minimum   &   maximum   operating   limits   and   minimum   &   maximum   hold   limits   are   specified,   along   with   the required unit of measure. Tolerances can be either specific values, or percentages of the target. When   defined   as   Mandatory,   a   result   must   be   entered.   If   Optional,   tests   can   be   entered   on   a   variable   basis   (e.g. per   Shift,   per   Grade,   etc).   Descriptive   Tests   cover   all   tests   that   cannot   be   measured   numerically,   for   example appearance. Again, these can be either Mandatory or Optional. Quality   Recording    is   event   driven   as   items   are   produced.   Where   possible,   Quality   Recording   can   be   interfaced directly   with   Supervisory   Control   systems   and   intelligent   testing   equipment.      The   system   confirms   the   suitability of   the   product   as   test   results   are   recorded.   If   all   tests   are   inside   the   operating   tolerances,   the   material   will   be allowed to progress to the next workcentre or moved into stock. If   any   test   is   outside   operating   tolerance,   but   inside   the   hold   limits,   the   system   will   alarm   the   operator      If   any   test is   outside   the   hold   limits   an   alarm   will   be   raised.   Recommendations   are   available   for   re-grading   or   diverting   out of   specification   products.   Used   in   conjunction   with   Machine   Running   Orders   and   Order   Enquires,   operators have all of the information to hand to allow quick decisions to be made for sub-standard production. Machine Operating Conditions can also be defined. These cover aspects of Machine set-up, such as flows, levels, temperatures, etc, as well machinery configuration. Machine Conditions can be recorded either manually, or through direct interfaces with your instrumentation or DCS. Data can also be recorded through remote hand held devices, and automatically uploaded. Production operators have access to this information for ‘best run’ set-up.
