This article details the elements making up the screens you use for creating Inspections



Inspection Policies

A policy is used to define who the inspection applies to, the frequency of the inspection and how much notice is to be given before the inspection will occur. A single policy can apply to more than one inspection. 

  1. Inspection Policies – the name of the policy. This is used when establishing the inspection template to identify what policy will apply to the inspection.
  2. Business Unit – is used to qualify which jobs the inspection applies to. 
  3. Region – is used to further qualify which jobs the inspection applies to. 
  4. Cost Code – this is used to restrict the inspection to a particular supplier / trade. If used a frequency must be nominated. 
  5. Frequency – this is used to determine the frequency of the inspection.


Related to Frequency - Inspections will generate on Task Inspections, 7 days before the task they are linked to's Estimated Date. This means the inspection will be available in a timely manner.


Inspection Categories

The categories are used for grouping like questions for reporting purposes. Categories will be assigned to the Inspection questions.

  1. Category – the name given to enable the classification of questions for report grouping purposes.

    2. Repeat the Inspection - The Inspection is scheduled again on the same task 
    3. Reschedule the task (that the inspection is associated with). - This is similar to a split task as a new task is created with the inspection attached.
