    you can only use quantitative or qualitative characteristics.

    For QUANT the result MUST be a number. No other choice!!!.

    For QUAL, the values MUST come from a catalog. No other choice!!!

    There is no free text allowed in QM inspection.

    If your techs are free to enter in any value they want, typos will happen and you will have no consistency.

    I've worked for companies doing car paints and I understand the infiinite number of colors thing. But for a given product or paint, there should still be only a limited number of choices. A red paiint can't be blue.

    You have a few choices.

    1) Decide on a list of catalog choices and use a qualitative characteristic

    2) Covert your shades to a number system and enter in number. I know there are several color tests and testing equipment that provide a number for the color.

    3) Use simple PASS/FAIL characteristic and have the tech enter in the actual color in the inspection description. This can be made required with the control indicators.

    Hi,

    I have used Inspection description field in similar situation where we can enter free text and can be made required by control indicator.

    This is the only option avilable (enter free text)
