On the Inspections tab you can:

  • Use the ADD M21 button to manually add an M21 inspection (failed inspections will trigger leaks)
  • Use the ADD AVO button to manually add an AVO inspection (failed inspections will trigger AVO events)
  • Input an Attempt
  • Sort either grid
  • Prepare a report to export to Excel
  • Show or Hide the Details Panel
  • Use the ADD OGI button to manually add an OGI inspection (failed inspections will trigger leaks)

You will notice several unique features on the ADD M21 Inspection Screen:

  • If you select the LUnit, the Plant and Facility will auto-fill.
  • M21 Why
  • M21 Variance: this enables you to track WHY a Tech may not have been able to follow Proper M21 Technique. The picklist is self-explanatory.
  • A way to record the Sample start and stop time and the Dwell start and stop time.
  • Add a document.
  • Add a comment.

Note: The text at the start of the screen tells the truth — all inspections entered on this screen are marked as having been entered manually.

You will notice these items on the Inspection grid.

  • The regulation for which a frequency requirement was satisfied by this inspection. If the inspection did not satisfy a specific regulation, then it is blank. It may, however, have more than one regulation, if more than one regulation was satisfied by the inspection. This item is automatically calculated by Chateau. You cannot add, edit, or delete it.

  • Inspection Why: This is the famous M21 Why or AVO Why.
