Did you know that… Blue Mountain RAM will automatically provide users with a list of Standards appropriate for the asset being calibrated?
How does this work? To start, simply create Standard Classes with the labels you choose. Next, list your classes on your Standards and list which of those classes are appropriate on each asset you calibrate. Finally, sit back and let Blue Mountain RAM do the rest! Let’s take a look at an example…
- In System Configuration, create the Standard Classes you want to use.
- Expand: Sites > YourSite > Codes & Classes, and highlight ‘Standard Classes.’
- Click New for each Standard Class you wish to create. Enter the label you want to use for your ‘Standard Class’ and add a description. Click Save.
- Now that your Standard Classes have been created, you are ready to list them on your Standards to identify each Standard’s classification.
- Open a query that displays your list of Standards. I have a query under Assets (under Equipment) titled ‘All Standards.’
- Right-click a Standard in the list and choose ‘Edit.’ For Standards in a status that does not allow editing, you will need to change the status to one that does, list the Standard Class(es) and then return the Standard to its prior status.
- When the Standard opens in edit mode, open its View Menu and select ‘Standard.’
- The Standard Properties Window will open. Click Insert in the Standard Class Members section of the window to open the Available Standard Classes Window.
- Add the appropriate Standard Class(es) for the Standard.
- Click OK in the Standard Properties Window and Save the edits to the Standard.
- Repeat Steps 6 through 10 until all Standards have been classified.
- The last step is to edit each calibrated asset to list the Standard Class(es) it requires. Open a query that displays your calibrated assets.
- Right-click an asset and choose ‘Edit.’ For assets in a status that does not allow editing, you will need to change the status to one that does.
- With the asset in edit mode, open its View Menu and select ‘Standard Classes to Use.’
- The Standard Classes to Use Window will open. Click Insert to open the Available Window and select the Standard Class(es) required by the asset.
- Click OK and Save the edits to the asset. If applicable, return the asset to its prior status.
- At this point, your work is done. Now Blue Mountain RAM will provide a list of Standards appropriate for the asset under calibration by matching the Standard Type listed on the asset to Standards of that classification. This list is presented in the Calibration Work Record’s ‘Standards Used’ Window.
- The example below shows an asset that needs a Flow Standard – being offered a list of Flow Standards.
