Creating Failure Effects
To add a failure effect, you must have permission to create failure effect objects in your quality context. This permission is assigned to the Quality System Manager and Reliability Engineer roles out-of-the-box.
You can have read-only permissions for the context, but still have permission to create failure effect objects. In this case, you can see the failure effect name, but the context appears as (Secured Information) and you cannot see the actual name of the context.
To create a failure effect, do the following:
1. In your quality context, click Failure Effects.
2. Click the create failure effects icon .
3. In the Create Failure Effect window, complete the following fields:
Required. Enter a name for the failure effect.
The system automatically generates a number for the failure effect. The number provides another way for users to search for a failure effect.
Suggested Severity
Enter the severity of the failure effect. Examples include the following:
Low, medium, or high
No risk, moderate risk, or high risk
A number from 1 to 10 representing the severity
Select a tag for the failure effect. Click the plus sign to add more than one tag to the failure effect.
Use tags to group failure codes for easier filtering and searching.
To create additional tags for failure effects, users with the correct permissions can add them as an enumerated list. For more information, see Enumerated Value List Constraints.
4. Click OK.
