Delete a Product

A product can only be deleted if it does not have any associated items (in Design or Risk Modules) or documents or documents with it. Hence if there are any Design Control/Risk Management items with the product- they will first have to be deleted. Approved items will have to be deleted and routed through a Change Request.

If the product has documents associated with it- they will have to be unlinked (through Edit Metadata in the document) or obsoleted. 

From the Design Control or Risk Management Modules, open the Product Menu. Then select the product you want to delete. 

Then in the Product Controls, click on the Trash icon to delete the product you had just selected. 

You will be asked to confirm if you want to delete the product.

When you click delete- if there are no associated items or documents with the product, the product will be deleted. 

Edit a Product

First select the product in which you are interested. Then click on the Edit icon in the product menu . Once you have entered the information, be sure to click Save. Here you can also associate Document templates to Design control protocols, reports and PHA/FMEA.

Create a Product

To create a product, simply click on the + icon in the Product Controls. 

Then enter the information about the product.

Name: The name of the product you’d like displayed. Any changes to the name will have to be routed for approval through a change request to be effective.

Short Code: The short code for the product. Any changes to the short code will have to be routed for approval through a change request to be effective.

Project Identifier: This identifier will be used as a prefix in Design Control Card names. For example: If you set the identifier as KMA then in the Design Control module you will see KMA-UN-1, KMA-DO-1 etc.

You can update the product name, short code, and product phase. This does not require a change request to become effective.

Product Phase: This is based on the Design Reviews. Once a Design Review is completed, product can be advanced to the next phase.

Templates: If needed, you can set the template files you’d like to use for the Design History File exports. Otherwise the default format will be used. Learn more about creating templates.
