ShopFloorManager's Sign-Off Flow Charts

Primer - Sign-Off Flow Charts

Sign-Off Flow Charts are used to manage the Flow of Files, Documents & Packets as they traverse the various Sign-Off States before final Approval. This allows you to select any number of Sign-Off States & assign them to a Sign-Off Flow Chart in a specific order. Once a Sign-Off Flow Chart exists you can assign it to any File, Document or Packet so it will traverse each Sign-Off State leading to Final Approval.

Depending on the Users "Rights" a User can just access these DNC Files, Manufacturing Documents & Packets or Sign-Off a given State(Approve it) so it can move to the next State. In other words some Users have only the "Right" to access these "Files" to perform their normal jobs while others can "Approve" these "Files" so they can move on to the next Sign-Off State.
