Functions of the PQAS Software

Furnish a paperless environment to:

  • Enter petroleum sample information

  • Enter test results for a sample

    • Automatic entry – read data directly from instruments with RS-232 interface

    • Manual entry – of either:

      • Instruments without an RS-232 interface

      • Over-ride automatic entry with manual entry

  • Produce reports on the data

    In a manner which will :

  • Be easy to use for the operator

  • Lower cycle time for testing

  • Provide a complete audit trail

  • Be reconfigurable to operational conditions

  • Simplify expandability and extensions

PQAS Data Entry Order

Ongoing operations:

  • Enter operator name

  • Enter new sample(s)

  • Run tests on sample(s)

  • Produce reports on samples and tests

    Occasional admin operations:

  • Re-configure system

  • Perform database maintenance

    After initial configuration, operations can be done in any order


Slide65 l.jpg

New Sample Entry


Slide66 l.jpg

New Sample Entry

  • You can simultaneously run any number of tests on any samples

    • The only restriction: you can not use an instrument again which is currently in use.

    • If you attempt to use an instrument twice, the PQAS software will warn you that you currently can not proceed with that test.

New Sample Entry Pulldowns

When done entering all samples click “Cancel” to return to main screen.

When done entering all the data for a sample, click “OK.”

System Overview

  • It provides a quick view of which tests are currently underway and which instruments are in use.

  • It provides a button to exit the “testing” (of “DAQ” – “Data Acquisition”) module of the software

Instruments in use or idle

Test currently in progress

Exit the testing mode of the PQAS software


Slide72 l.jpg

Configuration Utilities


Slide73 l.jpg

Instrument Configuration

The Instrument Configuration function modifies information about an instrument, it’s characteristics and operating state. This includes:

Instrument nameSerial numberTest used forOperating State:Wiring PortData comm details

  • Automatic/manual mode

  • RS-232 present

  • Is the instrument operating

  • When to use this function:

  • If the instrument is changed - record a new serial number

  • If the instrument malfunctions - change the operating state

  • The Data Acq module will only prompt for data on working instruments. It will set the “manual” or “automatic” data acquisition mode to match the entry in the configuration

  • If you change the wiring of the instrument to the Edgeport module –enter the new port number

  • Don’t modify the Data comm details unless particularly instructed.


Slide74 l.jpg

Fuel Configuration

The fuel configuration module sets:

  • For a fuel type

  • Which tests are to be run for a specific test level

  • What are the acceptable test values to have pass a fuel sample.

  • This module can be used to:

  • Modify the particular tests to be run for a specified fuel and testing level

  • Modify the acceptable test values, if regulations have changed

  • Add a new fuel type to the PQAS system

The acceptable values for a test depend upon whether the source of the fuel is “IntraGovernmental” or not. This is reflected in two sets of columns in the table.


Slide75 l.jpg

Reports

  • All data is stored in an Access database

  • Reports can be added or modified without affecting any other PQAS capabilities or any need to predefine them

  • You access the reports by running the report viewer program – “simple.exe”

  • Reports can be printed or saved in a number of formats

  • Reports can requests you enter data to limit range of the report


Slide76 l.jpg

Running a Report

  • Run “Simple.exe”

  • Hit “Select Report” button

  • Choose the desired report

Simple.exe main screen


Slide77 l.jpg

Report Parameters

Some reports require that you specify parameters

Our two example reports require the response to

the “Begin Date” and “End Date” for the data

If this box is “checked”, you will pick from a list of values from the whole database.

If unchecked, the pull-down button will produce a calendar to choose dates from.

Leave the box unchecked.
