More Drawing Approvals
Drawing Approvals for Design and Tender phase and Shop drawing approvals
Customers already using the current Drawing Approval process requested additional processes to support also the approval of drawings in the Design and Tender phase and also specific approvals for Shop drawings.
Having separate processes for each phase allows you to enable different people to work with their specific process setup, to create specific templates for each process and to keep separate reports for each phase.
Supporting new site-management processes
MEMO - Issue Site Memos
A new process has been added to be used for issuing Site Memos. The logic is very similar to any message or Letter but by using the specific MEMO you make sure that Site Memos can only be issued by specific people and are available in a specific report and thus allowing to get more attention by participants.
NCR - New processes to deal with Non-Conformity
We introduce two new predefined light-weight processes specifically addressing non-conformities on site.
Describe the non-conformity, set a date for rectification. By filling in the possible cause you will later be able to analyze the root causes of non-conformities.
The addressed Contractor has to answer with a rectification notification telling you also the method of rectification (like Use-as-is, Rework, Demolish, ...). All category field values are defined specifically for your needs in your project.
After receiving the rectification notification the issue can be delegated for inspection or directly be accepted or re-submitted in case the rectification cannot be accepted.
In the 'Processes' area you can find a specific reporting over the Non-conformities listing all issues, who issued it to whom and which trade and location it affects.
A very similar 3-step process has been added specifically for QA/QC non conformity - also coming with a separate reporting.
Reporting: enhanced filtering and export and performance enhancements
In all reports we make sure that you have the ability to filter by all category fields available in the forms. Thus, you can filter now in the Transmittal Log by Document type or the new NCR report by Trade or Location.
Based on your positive feedback we added Pivot tables to all Excel documents you export from the Process reporting.
Pivot tables are easy to adopt to your needs. Try to change the order of columns with the mouse ... you will see it is really easy to get the report structure you need. Once you clicked into the report area you should see a list of other fields which you can also add to the report as columns or rows.
RFQ report performance
We recognized that the performance on the RFQ report became sluggish over time - we fixed this by adding paging to this report.
