Did you know…you can control whether a Standard with issues can be assigned to a calibration? In Blue Mountain RAM, each Standard is constantly tracked. The Due Date of the Standard’s monitoring calibration event is always compared to the current date to make sure the Standard is not overdue. The Pass/Fail status of the most recent work record belonging to the monitoring calibration event is also constantly monitored to make sure the Standard is not in a failed state. The system responds and controls the use of Standards with issues according to your configuration choices.

  1. In System Configuration, go to: Sites > YourSite > Settings.

  2. Double-click Site Options to open the Scope Options (YourSite) Window.

  3. Scroll down to a section labeled, “Standards”.

  4. Settings you may choose are:
  • Allow Failed Standards (checkbox):  Check this box to allow users to choose to employ failed Standards in the  calibration of other assets (users will  receive a warning that the Standard failed  its own calibration and are they sure they  wish to use it). Uncheck this box to have  the system prevent users from employing  failed Standards.

  • Allow Overdue Standards (checkbox):Check this box to allow users to choose to employ overdue Standards in the calibration of other assets (users will receive a warning that the Standard is overdue for its calibration and are they sure they wish to use it). Uncheck this box to have the system prevent users from employing overdue Standards
    .
  • Allow Failed TAR (checkbox): This option applies if the site uses Measurement Class TAR (Test Accuracy Ratio) to build lists of suitable Standards for assets being calibrated.
    If this is the case,
    check this box to allow users to choose to employ a Standard that does not meet the Measurement Class TAR of the asset being calibrated (users will receive a warning that the Standard does not meet the TAR and are they sure they wish to use it). Uncheck this box to have the system prevent users from employing Standards that do not meet the TAR of the asset being calibrated.
