An overview of the number feedback
With the number feedback, values from measurement processes can be recorded easily. In the same step these are compared with the target value and its defined tolerance limits. The tolerance is determined by selecting one of the four tolerance types - exact, relative, percentage or absolute - and the respective values.
Create a number feedback
First click on the interaction button on the right side above the process steps and then select the interaction type Number Feedback.
There are four options, which tolerance type you want to measure your number against. The following four options are available:
- exact - the actual value should match the target value without deviation
- relative - the tolerance limits are set in relation to the target value
- percentage - definition of the allowed upward / downward deviation in percent
- absolute - definition of permissible maximum and minimum values
Important: If you want to have NO Tolerances at all, choose absolute and leave free the tolerance fields.
This makes sense for a simple measurement where you just want to make sure that only numerical values are entered by the user.
Set the Target Value first. It is also possible to determine whether the associated target value can be seen when the actual value is asked or whether it remains hidden for the user. Additionally you can define the required precision for the requested value.
In addition, this interaction can be used to define whether the entered tolerance values are visible to the subsequent user and whether error messages occur in the report if the upper or lower tolerance limit is exceeded or undershot.
