2. Setup parameters to test

In order to use Produmex Quality, create quality test templates, parameters and valid values. The test templates contain the quality parameters for evaluation and define the triggering conditions. Valid value type parameters can have predefined values.

2.1. Valid Value Library

Define valid values (define values for valid value type parameters) on the Valid Value Library form. Open the form from Administration > Setup > Quality > Valid Value Library.

  • Code: Unique code that identifies the value. The code is modifiable as long as the value is not in use.
  • Name: The name of the value.
  • Name Translation Key: The localization key that is used for translation. For more information about localization please see: Localization.
    If there is no translation, the key itself is displayed as the value name on the terminal.
  • Remark: Internal remark.
  • Cancelled (Y/N): Indicates whether the valid value is cancelled or not. Cancelled values cannot be linked to a parameter.

To cancel a value, select the ‘Cancel’ option from the right-click menu. Referenced values cannot be cancelled.
To remove a value, select the ‘Remove’ option from the right-click menu. Referenced values cannot be removed.
To restore a cancelled value, select the ‘Restore’ option from the right-click menu. It is not possible to restore removed values.

2.2. Parameters

Define quality parameters to evaluate on the Quality Parameters form. Open the form from Administration > Setup > Quality > Parameters.

  • Code: Unique code that identifies the value. The code is modifiable as long as the parameter is not in use.
  • Name: The name of the parameter. The parameter name must be unique.
  • Cancelled (Y/N): Indicates whether the parameter is cancelled or not. Cancelled parameters cannot be added to a test template.
  • UoM: The unit of measurement of the parameter. It is possible to enter any value as the UoM is not validated against the SBO UoMs. Only meaningful used for float and integer type parameters.
  • Value type: Defines the value type. Supported value types:
    • (1) String: The user can add a sequence of alphanumeric characters as the value. The maximum length is 100 characters.
    • (2) Float: The user can add a number with decimals as the value.
    • (3) Integer: The user can add a whole number as the value.
    • (4) Boolean: The parameter can have a Yes or No value. Please note: Currently this parameter type is not supported.
    • (6) Date: The parameter can have a date value.
    • (7) Time: The parameter can have a time value. Please note: Currently this parameter type is not supported.
    • (8) Valid values: The user can select the value from a list of predefined values.
  • Display Transition Translation: The localization key that is used for translation. For more information about localization please see: Localization.
    If there is no translation, the key itself is displayed as the parameter name on the terminal.
  • Comment: Short description of the parameter that is displayed on the Quality Test Template form.
  • Remark: On this field the user can enter the extended description of the parameter.

To cancel a parameter, select the ‘Cancel’ option from the right-click menu. Referenced parameters cannot be cancelled.
To remove a parameter, select the ‘Remove’ option from the right-click menu. Referenced parameters cannot be removed.
To restore a cancelled parameter, select the ‘Restore’ option from the right-click menu. It is not possible to restore removed parameters.

2.2.1. Settings for Valid value type parameters only

If the parameter value type is ‘Valid Values’, an additional ‘List of Valid Values’ grid is displayed on the screen. At least one valid value must be defined for the parameter in order to create it.

Add a new row to the grid by selecting the ‘Add Row’ option from the right-click menu. After the row is added, select the valid value code on the VV Code field. After the valid value code is filled, the VV Name and Display Translation fields are automatically filled with the Name and the Name Translation Key of the valid value. A valid value can only be added once to a single parameter, but it is possible to add it to multiple different parameters.

To set a valid value as the default, check the ‘Default’ checkbox on the row of the value. It is not possible to set multiple default values.

2.3. Test Template

Create the test templates on the Quality Test Template form. Open the form from Quality > Test Template.

  • Code: Unique code that identifies the test template. The code is modifiable as long as the test template is not in use.
  • Name: The name of the test template. The test template name must be unique.

2.3.1. Rules

Define the triggering conditions for the template on the header.

WMS Workflow Event
First define the WMS workflow event where the template is used. Possible values:

  • None: The Quality capture is not assigned to a workflow event.
  • Release: This setting is reserved for future use.
  • Purchase End: The quality capture is triggered after the Goods Receipt PO document is created in the Reception flow.
  • *Start: The Quality capture is triggered when the production order is started on the terminal. Please note: Quality capture will not be triggered if the production order is started from the Production manager.
  • On Hold: The Quality capture is triggered when the production order is put on hold.
  • Stop: The Quality capture is triggered when the production order is finished.
  • Received: The Quality capture is triggered when the product is received. The action is linked to the Receipt from production document.
  • Issued: The Quality capture is triggered after the materials are issued.
  • Batch: The quality capture can be initiated on the fat client. To test the batch on a scanner, go to Logistics > Inventory > Quality > Batch testing. To test the batch on a touchscreen, go to Quality > Batch testing.
  • Resource: The quality capture can be initiated on the fat client. To test the resource on a scanner, go to Logistics > Inventory > Quality > Resource testing. To test the resource on a touchscreen, go to Quality > Resource testing.
  • Purchase Start: The quality capture is triggered in the following step:
    • GS1/EAN Barcode: After the purchase order is selected.
    • Order: After the purchase order is selected.
    • No PO: After the supplier is selected.
    • Container: After the container is selected.

Failed Quality Status Code
This setting is reserved for future use.

Restrictions
Restriction checkboxes are reserved for future use.

SAP Doc Type
This setting is reserved for future use.

Remark
On this field an internal remark can be added for the test template.

Cancelled
This checkbox indicates whether the template is cancelled or not.

It is possible that multiple templates are defined for a certain item/resource during a WMS workflow event. For example, there is a template defined for the item and the item group it belongs to for the same WMS workflow event. In this case every defined test template is triggered.

Test templates are listed in ascending/alphabetical order based on their Quality Test Template Code.

2.3.2. Parameters

On the grid the parameters that needs to be tested on the run are listed.

Add a new row by selecting the ‘Add Row’ option from the right-click menu.
To remove a row, select the line and choose the ‘Delete Row’ option from the right-click menu.

Click in the Code field and enter the parameter code or select the parameter from a list after clicking on the icon.

After the parameter code is added, the system automatically fills the Name, Value Type, UoM, Display Translation and Comment fields with data from the Parameters form. A parameter can be added more than once to a test template.

Based on the value type of the selected parameter, a different tab is active on the bottom of the screen.

By default columns for every parameter type are displayed on the matrix, but only the Code field is editable. To hide certain columns from the matrix, use the Form settings SBO form.

Other fields of the matrix can be edited on the bottom section of the form. The type of the selected quality parameter determines which tab is active on this section. Users cannot navigate between the tab pages.

To cancel a template, select the ‘Cancel’ option from the right-click menu. Cancelled templates are inactive and are not triggered even when every condition is met.
To remove a template, select the ‘Remove’ option from the right-click menu. Removed templates are deleted and cannot be restored.
To restore a canceled template, select the ‘Restore’ option from the right-click menu.
To create a copy from the template, select the ‘Duplicate’ option from the right-click menu. Add a new test template code and name.

2.3.2.1. Date and Time type parameters

Frequency

  • Minutes: The period in minutes after which the testing of the given parameter must be repeated. If the parameter was tested for the item (group)/ resource (group) within the defined period when the quality control is triggered, the parameter does not have to be tested.
    If no frequency is defined, the parameter must be tested each time the test template is triggered.

2.3.2.2. String type parameters

Frequency

  • Minutes: The period in minutes after which the testing of the given parameter must be repeated. If the parameter was tested for the item (group)/ resource (group) within the defined period when the quality control is triggered, the parameter does not have to be tested.
    If no frequency is defined, the parameter must be tested each time the test template is triggered.

Default value

  • Value: The default value displayed during the quality test.

2.3.2.3. Numeric type parameters

Default value

  • Value: The default value displayed during the quality test.
  • Min Entry: Defines the minimum value that can be entered during the quality control.

  • Min Tolerance: Defines the minimum value that can be accepted. If the measured value is equal or greater than the Min Failure and less than the Min Tolerance, the test for the parameter counts neither as failure, nor as pass. If the measured value is equal or greater than the Min Tolerance and equal or less than the Max Tolerance, the test for the parameter counts as a pass.
  • Nominal Value: The nominal value for the parameter. This parameter is for information only.
  • Max Tolerance: Defines the maximum value that can be accepted. If the measured value is equal or less than the Max Failure and greater than the Max Tolerance, the test for the parameter counts neither as failure, nor as pass.
  • Max Failure: Defines the maximum value that can be accepted if certain conditions are met and further test are conducted. If the measured value is equal or less than the Max Entry and greater than the Max Failure, the test for the parameter counts as a failure.

Frequency

  • Minutes: The period in minutes after which the testing of the given parameter must be repeated. If the parameter was tested for the item (group)/ resource (group) within the defined period when the quality control is triggered, the parameter does not have to be tested.
    If no frequency is defined, the parameter must be tested each time the test template is triggered.
