Any part that is not considered "good" needs to be rejected in order to remove it from the good parts count. There are two ways to reject parts in the system, from the workcenter view and from the Quality page.
First, from the workcenter view:
On the bottom of the screen, select "Reject Part".
This will bring up the "Reject Part" screen:
- Rejection Category Indicator - A color-coded visual indicator assigned to each category of part rejection. This allows users to identify part rejection patterns for a given workcenter and potentially identify recurring issues with a machine.
- Rejection Category Name - A descriptor for a category that allows users to identify the reason a part is rejected.
- Number of Parts to Reject - The number of parts to reject for the given reason.
- Remove from Good Parts - A checkbox to subtract these parts from the good part count. This is enabled by default. In some cases - typically during setup - the machine will not report that a part is produced, but the operator should still indicate that a part was rejected. Uncheck this box to increase the number of rejected parts without deducting from the number of good parts.
- Description - This allows the user to add additional details as to why the the parts are being rejected. This is an optional but highly recommended field.
- Reject Part Button - Once all of the other information is filled in, the user selects this button to reject the parts.
The second way parts can be rejected is from the Quality page for a workstation.
On the right-hand side of the screen at the top of the "Rejected Parts" section, select the "Add Reject" button. This will bring up the "Reject Part" prompt.
From this prompt the user can reject parts similarly to the workcenter view. The main difference when rejecting parts from the Quality page is that parts can be rejected from past jobs rather than just the current job. These are the following steps:
1. User selects the date and inputs the time from which they want to reject parts.
2. Enter the number of parts rejected in the Count section and select a reason from the Reason dropdown. Just as in the workcenter view, they can add a description in the Message text box which is an optional field but highly recommended.
3. Finally, the user hits save and logs the rejected parts.
*Note: Part rejections can also be edited by selecting the row representing the parts the user wishes to edit. This will open a Reject Parts prompt in which the user can change any of the information for this rejection or delete the rejection altogether.
