Overview

As a service provider, you now can configure Specifications with significantly more logic. Instead of 1 generic specification type, we now have 6 unique specification types to select from to meet all your calibration requirements. This new functionality is much more user-friendly making it easier for you to configure all of your specifications.

Workflow

To begin configuring specifications, select “Product Specifications” from your PRODUCTS module.


Next, select “Add New Specification” from the toolbox on the right-side of your screen


Now, you will search the product catalog for the product model that you will be configuring the new specification for. Once you have found your product, select the model and click the green “Select” button on the bottom of the screen.


Hint: If you would like to add generic specifications for a product category, search for that product category and choose “Unidentified” as the manufacturer. This will allow you to link the specification to any asset within that product category.


To begin adding add your specification test points and/or ranges, select “Add New Record”


You now can choose from 6 different specification types: Percentage of Measured Value, Tolerance Range, Offset from Measured Value, Percentage + Count of Resolution, Parts Per Million of Measured Value, and Parts Per Million + Count of Resolution.

  • Percentage of Measurement Value: Here you will enter the value you are measuring (i.e. 100 grams) and then assign an accuracy your measurement will measure against (i.e. +/- 5%). This would mean any value between 95 grams to 105 grams is acceptable.
  • Tolerance Range: To set up this type of specification, you would select a reference value (i.e. 100 grams) and now instead of choosing a percentage you would tell the system a specific range that would be acceptable (i.e. 95-105).
  • Offset from Measured Value: To set up this type of specification, you would select a reference value (i.e. 100 grams) and then tell the system an offset value. If the acceptable range was 95-105 grams this would mean the offset would be +/- 5 grams.


  • Percentage + Count of Resolution: To set up this type of specification, you would first choose a specification low limit (i.e. 0 grams) and a specification high limit (i.e. 100 grams). Next, you will want to enter the resolution of your equipment (i.e. 0.01 grams). Then, you will want to assign the acceptable tolerance percentage (i.e. 5%) and the count of resolution in this case, "2 counts" (this would be mean your tolerance would be +/-5% +2 (measurement resolution().
  • Parts Per Million of Measured Value: To set up this type of specification, you would first select a reference value (i.e. 100 grams). Next you will want to choose your accuracy in parts per million (i.e. 500) which would calculate to +/- 0.0005 grams.
  • Parts Per Million + Count of Resolution: To set up this type of specification, you would first choose a specification low limit (i.e. 0 grams) and a specification high limit (i.e. 100 grams). Next, you will want to enter the resolution of your equipment (i.e. 0.01 grams). Then, you will want to assign the acceptable tolerance in parts per million (i.e. 500) and the count of resolution in this case 2 (this would mean your tolerance would equal +/-0.0005 +2 (measurement resolution)).


Lastly, after configuring all your specification types select the green “Ok”. Before selecting “Save” you will want to name your specification. To do so, click into the white box under the “Specification “column. Once you have added a name to all of your specification points, click “Save”.
