Spec Plan Wizard
The spec plan wizard has been designed to be an easy tool for creating
complete measurement (spec) plans in a step by step style. While there are many
features that can be set, the following are a couple highlights.
Save and Continue
plans can be saved and continued at a later time. This is a useful
feature if you need to measure parts both before and after an
operation. All you need to do is measure the part, then save and close
the session. When the part is ready to be continued, simply resume the
previous session for that part. Parts can be selected based on
date/time or by a unique factor such as serial number.
External Work Instructions Link
can optionally link your spec plan to external documents that
contain work instructions or blue prints. When the inspector
clicks the link, it automatically opens the document. Links support both regular Windows paths as well as HTTP paths for customers who have a web based document management system.
Data Collection Order
as to how you set up the features and factors, you can change the order
of their appearance during data collection. For instance, if you always
want the factors to be entered before the measurements, you can simply
move them to the top of the order.
Inspection Date Option
default, the inspection date that is sent to QC-CALC is the date/time
of the last measurement. There are options for the start time of the spec plan, the start time for each part (when first measurement is entered), the end time of the spec plan, or a user-entered date.
