Update Complaint Alert

This document explains how you update the repetitive complaint alerts to generate alarms for components and/or positions with frequent complaints.


Complaint alerts are generated for those components and/or positions with a higher complaint frequency than the frequency specified in 'Complaint Alert Level. Open' (MOS550).

The complaint alerts can be viewed in 'Complaint. Open' (MOS500) and analyzed in 'Complaint Alarm. Open' (MOS505).

Complaint alerts are saved in the complaint alarm file (ADCALM).
