Overview
Pareto Study (Pareto Study Charts) Master list of pareto studies and the ability to chart study
results.

Custom Study (Custom Study Charts) Master list of custom studies and the ability to chart study
results.
The purpose of these two menu options is to provide a method for quickly entering study results and
charting them for test runs, sample runs, prototypes, etc.

Our user base requested a way to quickly record study samples without defining a Product ID, Product
Characteristics or Product Inspection Plans. Therefore, by design, there is no revision control in either
of these options.
