An overview of the target-actual comparison
With the target-actual comparison, 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 target-actual comparison
To create a target-actual comparison, proceed as follows:
First click on the three dots on the right side in one of your process steps and then select the interaction type Target-Actual.
Then define the target value and the unit. 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 the second step, the type of tolerance is determined. 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 for the entered actual 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.
