What is an observation in TRENDABLE for Data Collection?
With TRENDABLE for Data Collection, you collect up to 2000 observations for FREE every month. But what counts as an “observation”? An observation in TRENDABLE is the set of measurements (visual or numeric) entered for a single part or process at any given time. These measurements are called “characteristics”. Characteristics are grouped under “projects”. You are allowed an unlimited number of projects. To keep TRENDABLE mobile-friendly, the maximum number of characteristics per project is 12.
Once a project is complete, click “Finish & Exit”. A link to download an Excel csv file will appear. In the spreadsheet, characteristics are listed in columns. Each row is an individual observation. This “database-ready” format is perfect for upload into TRENDABLE for Data Analysis. Consolidate your data to visualize process stability and capability over longer time spans (months and even years!).
