Step Definition / Name Value

The 'Name-Values Pairs' Tab on the Step Definition Form is used to define and list the configurable data entries for the Step Definition.

The following figure shows the different areas of the 'Name-Value Pair' Tab:


Adding Data Entries

To add new Data Entries / Name-Value Pairs take the following steps:

  1. In case the Step Definition Form is not yet open, find your the Step Definition and open the Step Definition Dialog.
  2. Fill out the General Attributes (find more information below)
  3. Fill the Value Attribute section. This section is dependent on the selected Value Type in the General Attribute section.
  4. Click the 'Plus Sign' button to add the configured data entry to the list.
  5. In the list change the Seq field if you want to change the sequence order in which they will appear on the Traveler for the user.

Some examples on adding specific types of Data Entries (will show step by step screenshots on how to add the specific type of Data Entry):

General Data Entry Attributes

General Data Entry Attributes are the attributes that have to be defined for each Data Entry.


The Name entered in this field will show up as the Label for the Data Entry on the Traveler. It will also be used in combination with Step Operation Number to identify the Data Entry if it is used in calculations.

Input to Output

The Data Entries can be made Part Specific, so the Step can be configured that the traveler only requires a Data Entry, if a specific Part is moving through a Step. This way you can reuse Step Definitions and customize them for different Parts.

If the Entry for the Attribute is left blank, the Data Entry will show up for each part type that will move through this Step Definition.

Individual vs Batch

Batch Data Entries will have a single input field for all parts on the Traveler. The individual option will show individual data entries for each part.

Required to Complete Step

If this check box is checked, the Traveler will not be able to move to the next step if no value is entered in the Traveler input field.

Required to Sign Off

For Steps with a condition it will require the user to first enter these values before the processing of the Step can be stopped.
