Part Quality Assurance Regime Maintenance

Document path Reference Contents > Quality Assurance > Part Quality Assurance Regime Maintenance

Within this window you can maintain the Quality Test Regime for a part. You can also copy a regime to any number of other parts using drag and drop from the Parts ScratchPad.

A regime consists of one or more tests that need to be pre-defined in the Masters -- Quality Assurance -- Scrap and Test Codes function. These tests have a 4 character code and a brief description.

When a part is received into inventory and has a regime and its Quality assurance tested flag is set in the Part Maintenance window, the user is provided with the Quality Results Data Maintenance window into which they should enter the Quality Control test results.

To create a test regime, enter a part number and tab through the grid. An additional line will be added if you tab out of the last column of the last row.

Tip TIP: There is a system-level option optQAInheritPhantoms that merges part regimes of multi-level phantom components of an assembly for an overall QA regime. This is useful, for example, when a phantom BoM is in one or more master products. There could be a number of end-products, perhaps packaged differently, deriving from one or more master phantom raw products to which the QA regime needs to apply. Care should be taken with test numbering so that the combined list is sensibly numbered. The combined results will all be linked to the end product when this option applies, not the phantom assemblies.

Field

Description

Part Number

Parts Master. Part number unique identifier. {PTMFILE.PTMPTNO char 18}

Description

Parts Master. Part description. {PTMFILE.PTMDESC char national 30}

Default Comments Text Code

Parts Master. Quality assurance test default comments std. engineering text code. {PTMFILE.PTMQACO char 4}

Test Grid

List of tests for the selected part.

Test Number

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Test number of the set for the part. {QAPFILE.QAPNO integer}

Test Code

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Test code from which description obtained (related to IDXCODE with IDXTYPE=8). {QAPFILE.QAPCODE char 4}

You can drag and drop tests from the Index and Other Code Maintenance window to add them to your regime. You cannot use drag and drop to change existing test codes.

Test Description

Test description is from codes previously set up.

Result Range

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Test result expectation for the part. {QAPFILE.QAPRANG char 255}

Minimum

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Minimum permissible numeric value (if any). {QAPFILE.QAPMIN number float}

Maximum

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Maximum permissible numeric value (if any). {QAPFILE.QAPMAX number float}

Decimal Points

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Numeric result decimals (0- to 6, 7=Floating point). {QAPFILE.QAPDP integer shortint}

Customer Range

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Test result customer specification for the part. {QAPFILE.QAPCRAN char 255}

Note NOTE: The customer range and specification minimum and maximum replace the result range and minimum and maximum on documents sent to the customer. This enables you to have an in-house test specification that is tighter than that agreed with or seen by the customer.

Specification Minimum

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Minimum customer specification numeric value (if any). {QAPFILE.QAPCMIN number float}

Specification Maximum

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Maximum customer specification numeric value (if any). {QAPFILE.QAPCMAX number float}

Enforce limits

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Enforce minimum and maximum. {QAPFILE.QAPFORC boolean}

Force into Quarantine

Quality Assurance Part Tests. Force into quarantined stock if enforced min or max. {QAPFILE.QAPFORC boolean}

Note NOTE: The entire receiving quantity will be placed in quarantined stock if the part is multi-location and at least one test that is checked with this attribute is outside the Minimum and Maximum range (not specification minimum and maximum) and it also has the Enforce Limits checked.
