Quality vs Quantity in Orders?

'Qlty' indicates the number of good quality(which passes the Quality Check test) products produced. 'Qty' indicates the total number of products assigned for production. Referring to the below example, 72/1000 indicates the total number of items assigned to the Job is 1000 and the number of good quality items being produced at that particular time is 72.

What is 'Rejection Count' on the 'Jobs' listing page in SFactrix?

'Rejection Count' indicates the number of scrap items i.e., the number of item which does not pass the QC (Quality Check) test under a particular job. In the below example, the rejection count is 8, which means out of 80 products being produced, 8 are scrap items.

What is 'Progress' on the 'Jobs' listing page in SFactrix?

'Progress' on the Jobs listing page indicates the extent of job completion. Dark blue on the line indicates the quantity of job completion and when you mouseover, the percentage(7.2% in the below example) of job completion is displayed.
