Below each of the elements are broken down by its distinct function(s).

 

Illustration of Reports OptionsThe Reports generated by SpecsIntact are designed as quality control tools for the project. The ability to read and understand all the reports is essential to releasing a completed specification at 100%. It is the responsibility of the specification editor to point out problems indicated in the reports to the engineers so they can correct the problems in the specs. Always check for typographical errors first before considering a reported error an actual discrepancy.

 

You choose to generate a report by clicking it to place a check in the box beside it. If you want to run all the reports, click the Select All button. The documents generated are .rpt files and can be printed or viewed. They are placed in the Processed Files folder under the Job in the SI Explorer, indicated by a red icon .




Icon indicating Helpful HintTo Learn more about the Reports, their functions and how to correct the problems refer to Chapter 6 in the QuickStart Guide.

 

Icon indicating CautionAfter correcting errors detected through these reports, it is important to run the reports again to make certain that all previous errors have been resolved and that no additional ones have occurred.

Click to check the correct boxes.
