In this step, you process the quality notification types that
will be used with the defects recording function.
The chapter Notification
Creation describes how to define the notification
types . This chapter also contains detailed
instructions on how to make the settings for all of the
notification type-dependent controls.
In the section 'Notification Types' (chapter Defects Recording),
carry out the following steps:
Check the settings of the notification types to be used for
defects recording. This includes:
the defined notification types themselves
the catalog profiles used in the notification types
the basic data selected from the catalog profiles for each
Complete the settings associated with the notification
In the catalog profile, define the unit of measurement to
permit the defects to be valuated quantitatively.
Assign a quality notification type to the inspection type.
You have processed the chapter 'Notifications':
You have defined the catalogs, catalog profiles and
notification types to be used for defects recording.
You have maintained all settings that are dependent on the
You do not need to maintain partners to use the defects
Notification types suitable for different inspection lot origins
and inspection types have already been set up in the standard
If you define your own notification types, use the settings
contained in the standard system as a reference.
Use special notification types for defects recording, so you
can distinguish the defect data from the other problem data on the
basis of the notification type.
1. Check the notification types that
will be used for defects recording.
a) Identify the notification types
that will be used for defects recording (if you have not already
defined the notification types, define them now).
b) Check the catalog profiles as well
as the catalogs and code groups contained in the profiles.
c) Check the basic data for each
notification type; that is, the catalogs chosen from the catalog
profile for each notification type.
2. To be able to valuate the defects
quantitatively, assign units of measurement to the appropriate
3. Assign an appropriate notification
type to all inspection types with which you intend to record
You can valuate defects quantitatively if you activate the
defect valuation function in the confirmation
profile. You can specify a unit of measurement for the
defect valuation and propose it in the catalog profile. The unit of
measurement must have been previously defined. For more
information, refer to the step
of measurement in the chapter Environment.
When you assign notification types to the
types, the definition of the screens (subscreens) for
the notification type is important. These screens must be
compatible with the
origin to which the inspection type in question is
