Now that there is some data available, it might be a good moment to look into some reports.

Traveler Report

The first report to give a look is the traveler it self. It can be opened by pressing the Print Icon at the top of the traveler.

This Traveler Report can be used in multiple ways.  It can be printed out and follow parts through the processing steps, and it can also be viewed as needed to check its current step and/or sign off times.  

Customization options include:

  • Details - Provides basic information regarding 'Flow Definition' name, Current Step, Part State, and Requested Part.
  • Request Details - Work Order information.
  • Create Details - Details on what user created the traveler, includes time/date stamps.
  • Attached Parts - Very useful for viewing parts attached to travelers that contain UID's (serial and/or lot id's).
  • Step Descriptions - Displays step descriptions.  Useful for operators to view other details.
  • Instruction Docs - If Work Instructions are attached to Step Definitions it will display hyperlinks to them as well as file revisions and date/time information.
  • Attachments - If a technician attached a document to any step during its process, the file information will be displayed.
  • Blog Entries - Displays the latest blog entry entered on the traveler step.
  • Splits / Merges - If parts split or merged during a step, this information will be displayed.
