Create and edit MI test sequence

To create a new MI test sequence, enter the WATS Control Panel and navigate to the Manual Inspection Manager from the menu.

NOTE: It is highly recommended to use Internet Explorer as web browser when launching the designer. Also make sure your (sky)WATS domain (e.g.: https://[name].skywats.com) is added to the Local Intranet zone. For details, please visit http://support.virinco.com/entries/22152163

To create a new test sequence, click on "New Sequence" from the ribbon, and a new sequence will appear in the selected/active folder. Then select it from the list (single click).

When a sequence is selected, properties and relations will display in the right pane.

Here you can configure if the sequence should be global, which defines if it can be used as a sub sequence in other MI test sequences, or if a test in progress requires a UUT and UUR report on first failed test step. Relationships to products/production can be altered while the sequence is in the "Draft" or "Pending" state, and a relationship must refer to at least one Test Operation in order to be set as active. If multiple Test Operations are defined, the operator must choose between those operations prior to test execution.

To design the sequence, click "Design Sequence" from the ribbon. This will launch the Sequence Designer (see picture below), and since it's a ClickOnce application, it requires to be downloaded to the client the first time.

Once the designer has opened, you can drag and drop different step types from the toolbox, and to configure the properties of a sequence or test, click the [...] button on the step type as illustrated below.

Once you are satisfied with the design of the sequence, click the "Save" button.

    This seems like a really nice feature.

    What I am unable to do is build a sequence that is usable for various products.

    To do this I would need to be able to a relationship with e.g. a wildcard.

    partnumber=" UUT_TYPE_* "

    Or is it possible through a different method?

    Hello Arjen,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    You can use a wildcard at the end of the string (in the "Value" column) when the relation type is "PartNumber", either with % or * as in your example. You can also define multiple part number relations w/ wildcard for the same test sequence.

    Hello Henrik,

    Thanks for the feedback. It seems to work like you describe. However I also have products in the database that do not have a "part number".

    For these I want to have a default test sequence to be displayed in the Operator interface. I tried a relation-ship

    PartNumber=*

    But that doesn't seem to work.

    One other problem is that our serial numbers start with a * therefor I can use that as a relationship either.

    Hello Arjen,

    We have discovered the issue in the beta version of MI (which is the one you are currently using), that does not respond to the "*" value. This is fixed in the upcoming release. For now I belive you can just leave the "Value" column empty, and it should respond to all part numbers (as a workaround).

    The "SerialNumber" relation type does not support wildcard for the moment, and need to match the serial number entirely. We might add support for this in a future release (same as for BatchNumber). If your serial numbers starts with *, you could combine it with the % character e.g. "*%" or "*123%" which should work the same way as for part numbers, as soon as we've added wildcard support for this relation type as well.

    Best Regards

    Henrik

    Hi,

    do I need some additional software or add on for the browser to be able use this? I am able to create sequence, but, when I try to design sequence additional tab flashes in browser window, but than disappears. Bob-ups in browser are allowed

    I Installed firefox browser, then the "Design sequence" button opens the sequence editor as expected, in internet explorer it does not... due to trusted site settings maybe?...

    Hi Claus,

    Correct, it should work if you add WATS to the Trusted Sites list.

    Internet options -> Security -> Trusted sites -> Sites, and Add.

    Did this solve your issue?
