PTS - Site Inspector Module

Large projects (such as Power Plants) require on-site inspectors at the manufacturing site to ensure that outgoing shipments meet the original requirement specifications. If a manufactured item is found to meet the original specifications and quality constraints it receives approval for final shipment to the site. This is often referred to as a Manufacturing Dispatch Clearance Certificate or MDCC.

PTS provides a web-based interface for each site inspector to enter the inspection status for each manufactured part that is about to be shipped. Each part is then compared to the corresponding activity in the Project Plan. If the inspection and/or shipment gets delayed PTS automatically raises a warning that corresponds to the activity in the Project Plan.

This post is the fourth in a series about UTS's Project Tracking System. Check back next week to learn about the Site Managers Module.
