Path: Transactions > Grounds >Grounds Inspection Forms / Identity Tab
Use the Grounds Inspection Form window to select a set of Routes to be inspected for regular inspections. You can inspect each area or a random set of areas within the selected Routine assignment.
The Grounds Inspection Form window is the template that sets parameters before you generate a Grounds Inspection. Rather than having to manually create inspections, the Batch Management module in WebTMA is used to automatically generate inspections, similar to generating PMs.
Grounds Inspection Forms Details
Requests. If you use the WebTMA Request module and want the option to submit Requests for specific inspection points after an inspection, include a Request Type Code. This is an optional field. After the actual inspection is saved, you can go to the Grounds Inspection window and submit Requests from lines in the grid. Only inspections based on a Form that includes a Request Type are eligible.
Random %. If you insert a number in the Random % field, the system will select a random number of areas within the selected Route based on the quantity you determine. For example, if you choose the number 10, the system will select 1 out of every 10 areas at random. The system does not select every tenth area because that would be defined as planned selections rather than random selections.
If you mark the check box next to the Random % field, random areas will be weighted to favor areas that have not yet been inspected, i.e., to give priority to uninspected areas.
Always Inspect. For areas that must be inspected, use the Areas To Always Inspect Section to add these. They can be for any Area and are not limited to a particular Route.
Checklist and Mobile Inspections. A list of items displays on the supervisor's checklist. If you purchase the mobileGrounds option, you can download the inspections list to mobileTMA GO (Technician-role login). The mobileGrounds windows offer a number of filters to help locate the desired checklist.
Note that if you use WebTMA GO for your Grounds Inspections, the separate mobileGrounds option is not required to make inspections.
How to Create Inspection Forms
On the Grounds Inspection Forms window in Add mode:
Complete the required fields in the General Information Section.
Complete the required fields in the Frequency Section.
Add any elective fields needed.
Click the Add Route link in the Routes Section to select Routes.
(Optional) Click the Add Area link in the Areas To Always Inspect Section.
Click Save on the WebTMA toolbar.
Ratings are added to WebTMA from Lookups / Grounds Inspection Rating by your WebTMA System Administrator. When selected on the Rating Tab, they apply to the whole form. Codes are selected when you make inspections. These can be the five levels defined by APPA or your own custom Ratings.
Add a list of inspectors that are assigned to the inspections when they are generated from a batch job. The inspection displays on the inspector's handheld device if you use the mobileGrounds option.
