Editing Failure Modes
To edit a failure mode, you must have permission to edit failure mode objects in your quality context. This permission is assigned to the Quality System Manager and Reliability Engineer roles out-of-the-box.
To edit a failure mode, do the following:
1. In your quality context, click Failure Modes.
2. In the Failure Modes table, right-click the failure mode and select Edit Failure Mode.
3. In the Edit Failure Mode window, complete the following fields:
Required. Enter a name for the failure mode.
The system automatically generates a number for the failure mode. The number provides another way for users to search for a failure mode. This field is not editable.
Select a tag for the failure mode. Click the plus sign to add more than one tag to the failure mode.
Use tags to group failure codes for easier filtering and searching.
To create additional tags for failure modes, users with the correct permissions can add them as an enumerated list. For more information, see Enumerated Value List Constraints.
Required. Select Yes if the failure effect is obsolete or No if the failure effect is not obsolete.
4. Click OK.
