Good morning, Arlene - You mentioned "key" as a piece of equipment that may shut down the operation. In most plants this could be almost any asset where there is not redundancy. So, first you will need to define "key asset" and "operation". What does operation really mean? Is it any operation on the property or only specific ones?
In regulated industries such as yours, you may need to use multiple fields to get the result that will help maintain your business.
If this definition is singular a simple YorN field can be used for identification. If the definition has multiple results, then it is not as straight forward. For example, key could have different meaning and relationships just as critical can relate to safety, product or environmental. All being important to business and related but may need separation to derive the result you want. Also, if using multiple selections, I recommend making sure they are analytically quantifiable. Using phrases like Critical, More Critical, Less Critical, Non-Critical are subjective and can become meaningless. Once you have your definition, you can then determine any user requirements, such as if this is related only to GMP activities and if you want this data to drive functionality in your system._________________________________Mark JacksonGenesis Solutionsmjackson@genesissolutions.com_________________________________
