Quality Assurance Setup
In the Quality Assurance Setup page, general COSMO Quality Assurance settings are defined as well as number series for the individual areas of the test order process.
To set up general Quality Assurance information
- Choose the icon, enter Quality Assurance Setup, and then choose the related link.
- On the Quality Assurance Setup page, fill in or update the fields as described in the following tables.
The fields on the General FastTab are described in the following table.
|Activate Appl. Area||Makes pages and controls visible for COSMO Quality Assurance.|
|Test Order Unblocks Test Device||Determines if test devices are automatically released immediately after finishing a test order. By finishing the test order, the status of the test device is set to Certified.|
|Use Without Expected Value||If turned on, the Valid Determined Value field on the Value Recording page is calculated based on the Upper Limit and/or Lower Limit fields and therefore, the value in the Expected Value field is not considered.
For more information, see Interpret Determined Value.
|Prod. Test Order Creation||Determines whether and when Test Orders for production are created automatically. The options are:
- Manually: Test Orders are not created automatically.
- Prod. Order Release: Test Orders are automatically created when a production order is released. This function does not work when a Released Production Order is created manually. Additionally, item tracking must exist on the main production order line and any component lines (if required) in order to release the order.
- First Output: Test Orders are automatically created when the first output is posted for a released production order.
Note: This function requires the Test Plan Setup for production-related test orders (see Test Plan Setup on Items and Item Variants).
|Default Blocked Item Location Code||Blocked location where a lot will be automatically transferred if the Inspection Result on its test order is Items are not OK.|
|Document Storage Point||Determines how a document is stored for Test Plans, Test Orders, Test Incidents, and Sample Occurrences. The options are:
- Document File: All documents are stored in a centralized Document File table that can be accessed by the individual record.
- Per Record: The document file is stored in individual records.
For more information, see Document Storage.
|Lot-/Serial No.-Status on Test Order Release||Status that a lot- or serial number must inherit when a test order is Released; used with the Adjust Lot Status on Test field in Test Plan Setup (see Test Plan Setup on Items and Item Variants).|
|Lot-/Serial No.-Status on Test Order Finish||Status that a lot- or serial number must inherit when a test order is Finished; used with the Adjust Lot Status on Test field in Test Plan Setup (see Test Plan Setup on Items and Item Variants).|
|Inventory Overview Display||Determines whether the Quantity field on the Inventory Overview page is displayed in the current Unit of Measure or the Base Unit of Measure from the Item Card.|
|Default 8D Template No.||Indicates the default template to be used when creating 8D Reports (see 8D Template).|
|Use Unspecified Status on Test Order||Determines if unspecified statuses can be used on Test Orders (see Unspecified Inspection Result on Test Order).|
|Test Sched. Dummy Item No.||Indicates the dummy item number that will be used for the Test Order Scheduling process (see Test Order Scheduling).|
|Default Sched. Work Center No.||Indicates the default work center number that will be used for the Test Order Scheduling process (see Test Order Scheduling). When no testing activity is assigned, this Work Center will be selected for rescheduling Test Orders based on system date plus Wait Time.|
|Update From Certified Plans||Determines whether the latest valid Certified Test Plan is used for copying or all other Statuses are considered as well when running the Update Test Plans function in Test Properties or Test Property Sets. For more information, see Mass Updates of Test Plans.|
|Default Retest Go-Ahead Rate||The date formula entered in the Default Retest Go-Ahead Rate field uses the system date to create a range of dates for which the retest orders should be dated.
For example, if system date is February 10, 2020, and 2D is entered in the Default Retest Go-Ahead Rate field, then the Retest Date in the Create Retest Order batch job will be 2/10/20..2/12/20. For more information, see Retest Orders.
|Update Strategy for Lot Info||Determines how the quantity is posted from one lot to another in the Lot-/Serial No. Administration page. The options are:
- Always Ask: Opens a selection window on posting when a target lot exists, asking the user to add the quantity or overwrite the lot. This selection window opens if no general/special setup is found.
- Add Quantity: Add only the quantity from the source lot to the target lot. The lot information for the target lot is unchanged.
- Overwrite: Overwrites the lot information of the target lot with the source lot and adds the quantity.
For more information, see Lot Joining.
|Automatic Lot Split on Return||If turned on, for example, on a Sales Return Order, the returned quantity can be related to a separate Trading Unit to track the returned quantity from a part of the original lot that is still in stock. For more information, see Lot Split on Sales Return.|
|Do not plan for expired||Determines if an expired Lot is used when the Lot has no Status.|
