Step 5.4. Specify a Defect Category's General Characteristics

Begin configuring a new defect category by defining its general characteristics in the General tab of the Defect Properties dialog box. Characteristics are defined when a code is assigned and a description is indicated.

 To define general defect characteristics:

  1. Select the General tab.

  2. Enter a text description for the defect in the Description field.

 Note: During your configuration and at runtime, if SPC detects configuration inconsistencies, it will display an $SPC_ADMIN _ALARM in the Alarm Viewer.
