Adding New Reject Reasons
Click the Add Reason button at the bottom of the Reject Reasons section to create a new reject reason. You will be presented a Reject Reason dialog with the same fields to specify the category name, color, and behavior as described in Managing Reject Reasons.
If you're unsure of what reject reasons to add, see the attached Sample Reject Reasons document at the bottom of the page for inspiration.
Managing Reject Reasons
Click on an individual reject reason in the Reject Reasons section to display the settings for that reason. In the Reject Reason dialog, you can edit the name, associated color, and the behavior of the reason in terms of how the reason is marked in MachineMetrics as scrap or non-conforming. You can also archive the reason so that it is no longer presented to operators.
Reject Reason Behaviors
In the Reject Reason dialog for a selected reject reason, you can choose from the following options to designate how the MachineMetrics system behaves when that reject reason is selected by an operator:
Scrap or Non-Conforming: This setting allows the operator to select whether a part that is rejected for this reason should be considered scrap or non-conforming.
Scrap: This setting will cause MachineMetrics to automatically mark all parts rejected for this reason as scrap.
Non-Conforming: This setting will cause MachineMetrics to automatically mark all parts rejected for this reason as non-conforming.
