Understand & Interpret Pieces

This article will aim to explain the Piece Page, and the different features that are displayed within it.

Every physical piece that is entered through the system will have its own page, displaying all the details about that particular piece. A piece pages can be found by navigating to Plan > Pieces, or by clicking on a piece's name in any page of the software (for example in an order or a run).


Piece Summary

The first box is the Piece Summary. This displays a render of the piece, the piece name which can be edited using the edit icon, the order that it is in (including the link to the order), the status, production workflow, and the date and time it was created. It also includes a table that breaks down the prep and production workflows of the piece. If a run is In Progress or Complete, the Name of the run will include a direct link to the run, and a blue arrow will appear that expands into more details of that run.


The comments shown in this box are automatically carried through from the order of the run. Therefore if a user enters a comment in the linked order, it will appear under the comments section of that piece.
