Data collection and scrap to QA

This is much better in 5.0. There is now a scrap that can be entered that
"does not" go to inspection processing. Then there is a discrepant parts
field that can be entered that "does" go to inspection processing. This is a
big reason to go to 5.0 if you use the quality module.

I would be curious to hear how (or if) this upgrade impacted performance
perceived by the end users. Much to my surprise, when we recently went from
to 4.0 I actually had a slight performance improvement across the board.
what type of server are you using for Vantage. I'm still using an "antique"
Pentium II with only 256M RAM.

If the performance hit is not too great, I'm going to take the plunge to v5.0
sooner rather than later. My quality department is about to revolt with the
"feature" of Data Collection scrap automatically creating a Non-Conformance.
our analysis of this new feature we feel that the cost of processing these
transactions is greater than the value received from same information. (One
my divisions has even gone as far as entering scrap in Labor Notes....UGH!)
understand that there is more flexibility introduced in v5.0.
