In addition to the Part, Process and Test names that are needed to create a chart within ProFicient, descriptors can optionally be tagged to any entered data. Once data is entered, the system allows sorting on any of the descriptors. In the example above, engineers might want to know which engine serial numbers(descriptor) had a specific type of defect.
To view the serial numbers by defect code, clickChart>Configuration>Processing. This brings up the Processing Options window found in Figure 2. In the "Major Category" tab, click "Defect Code." In the "Minor Category," tab, click "Descriptor." Next, select "Serial Number" (or your choice of descriptors) from the "Descriptors" portion of the window.
