Assets can now be registered as tools directly from the Asset Manager:
Navigate to your Asset Manager
Find the asset you would like to register as a reference standard and click the serial number
Click into the ‘Role’ tab, click ‘Register As’
Assign the appropriate Measurement Quantity
After the registration is complete, you will be re-directed to the Tool Configuration screen to finalize the Tool Setup:
• Update the Name and Description fields as needed. Next click into the ‘Compliance’ tab. Fill out the applicable fields and click ‘Update’
Select the “Tool Range” tab. Select “Add Range/Mode” to add a new tool range.
Complete the fields in the Tool Range/Mode pop-up dialog:
Once you have added the tool ranges, click “OK” to add the range. The ranges will be pre-selected (indicated by the green check mark on the left-hand side) as a viable range for this standard. To un-select a specific range, click on the check mark and it will turn grey. To delete a range, select the "red X" on the right side of the window.
Now, when you work on a work order using this tool, the system will automatically apply the correct uncertainty based on the value of the measurement you are capturing and the related range requirements
Reference Value in Tool Ranges
The reference value can be used to automatically set the expected value when creating a measurement form. An example where this can be used are weight standards - the nominal may be 10 grams, but the weight standard actually weighs 9.985 grams. In this case, the reference value and the expected value would be 9.985 grams.
To remove any Roles that have been added, go to Administration > Sites then click on the site the tool is under. Click Tools. Click the X to the right of the tool role that needs to be removed.
Resolutions in Tool Ranges
With this feature, you are able to assign a resolution to your tool's range within your "Tool Configuration" page. A tool's resolution will automatically be applied to your measurement specifications and readings once selected in a work order. The resolution will supersede any settings already configured after verification through a confirmation pop-up.
To begin, you will need to open your reference standard's "Tool Range" in the Tool Configuration page. Click on the "N/A" value in the Resolution column.
In the "Edit Tool Range/Mode" pop-up, enter in the appropriate value in the field named "Resolution". For this example, we will be set the Resolution to ".0001", meaning any measurement taken with this tool having the capability to read to the fourth decimal point.
Click "OK" to save the value to you Tool Range table.
Now that your tool has a Resolution set, this setting will impact the reading display on the fulfillment interface.
