Create Measures in a DefectPermanent link for this heading

In quality management, authorized users can now enter the following measures for a defect:

  • Immediate action
    Immediate actions are primarily used to limit the damage so that the underlying problem is prevented from spreading further until a permanent solution has been found.
  • Corrective action
    Corrective action serves to eliminate the root causes of the problem in order to solve it permanently.
  • Preventive action
    Preventive action is used to ensure that the same or similar errors cannot occur again in the future and is usually linked to an effectiveness test over an appropriate period of time. The risks identified during the root cause analysis should be addressed by appropriate preventive measures.

The following metadata can be specified for each measure (see immediate action):

  • Person responsible
    This user is responsible for processing the measure and is assigned corresponding activities of the measure process.
  • Due on
    The due date for the completion of the measure.
  • Short description
    The short description of the measure, limited to a maximum of 254 characters.
  • Description
    A comprehensive description of the measure, which must contain all relevant information.
  • With feedback
    If this flag is set, the user selected in the "Feedback to" field will receive feedback in the form of an activity once the action has been completed.
  • With effectiveness check
    If this flag is set, the user selected in the "Effectiveness check by" field receives a request to check the effectiveness of the implemented measure in the form of an activity once the measure has been completed. In the "Effectiveness check after" field, select the period after which the activity is to be prescribed, calculated from the completion of the measure.
