Control panel > Process and production > Processes
The Process list is one of the core elements in WATS. You can define the list of different processes applicable to you and your company. Each process can be a Test, Repair or WIP (Work In Progress) Operation.
Test operations are the ones available in e.g. TestStand at startup. Repair Operations are used to tag UUR reports and also define different sets/lists of repair codes (create Repair Report). The process list will be pushed out to the clients and servers.
To edit the Process list, browse to Control Panel > Configure/settings > Processes. Referring to the In-app HELP file (upper right corner) in your WATS Application for details.
See images below.
Processes and Yield calculations
It is important to differentiate test results from different processes in order to get the correct Yield (e.g. First Pass Yield) calculations. WATS uses processes for this purpose, see example below.
As an example, if test results from “Process 1” and “process 2” was labeled below the same process (like ICT), the First Pass Yield calculation for the 2 processes would be incorrect. Referring to the in-app HELP file (upper right corner) in your WATS Application for details. See the Statistics and calculations in WATS chapter.
It seems that the pictures are from an older version of SkyWATS.
I'm also unable to delete a process in the current version, or have I missed how to do it?...
Hi, yes, print screens will be updated periodically as the WATS GUI changes.
You cannot delete a process, only change the name or set them inactive. I hope this was clarifying.
What is best practice when defining processes? One per teststand sequence or one for many teststand sequences?
You should make one for many TestStand sequences. In general, try to keep the number of processes limited, as you can filter Part Numbers, sequence files etc "within" each process.
The list of processes should be your "overall" process steps above stations, sequences, operators, etc.
