Recipe Management

The effective and fast development of new formulations is a complex process and a business success factor. Electronic data processes and data management are the basis for realizing short times to market for products. The [DIA] module „Recipe and Laboratory Journal Management“ provides the economic basis for electronic support of the development processes, while being flexible at the same time.

Inspection orders

Orders that do not result from continuous production must be able to be executed with a configurable inspection plan. The [DIA] module Test Order supports the described process. For incoming orders, the software creates test orders to which predefined or individual test plans, methods, and devices are assigned. The corresponding barcode labels can be printed for the samples. After the analyses have been performed, the results are assigned to the test order manually or automatically. The responsible person can release the test orders, assign them for reprocessing and create certificates.

Why is no printout created?

Due to the terminated further development of [DIA], it is quite possible that printers are not recognized, because they are either too new, or an interface is missing. In this case you should think about a possible upgrade to [FP]-LIMS.

Why does the login in the [DIA]Web not load the browser interface but the login window again?

Usually, the reason is the cache of the used browser. Clear the browser cache and restart the browser. If the problem persists, please contact our support. Updating the browser can also cause problems e.g. due to a lag of interfaces.

Why does [DIA]Web not load a login dialog?

If at startup only an image appears instead of a sequence of images showing the loading process, the components of [DIA]Web have not been loaded. Please contact your IT to solve the problem. In the [DIA]Web installation there is a folder „ext-4-2-1“ under „resources/lib“. If this folder is not present or does not contain any files, there is usually still an „ext-4-2-1.zip“ in the directory and can be unpacked. If the problem still exists, please contact support.

Why is the macro command type „Run batch“ not available?

If the type is not available, a database entry is missing. Please contact your IT to add the entry manually. The corresponding SQL statement is: „INSERT INTO [dia].[dia].PLAUSIBILITY VALUES (N’BATCH_TYP‘, N’EX‘, N’Execute batch‘, N’Execute batch‘)“ If you do not have the possibility to add entries manually to the database or the problem still exists, please contact support.

Why does the [DIA] icon in the taskbar/Windows bar disappear when I minimize the program?

This error occurs only with the operating system Windows XP, we advise switching to a newer, but not too new, operating system, so that our software works for you again. Or else you could switch to our new data management and quality management solution [FP]-LIMS.
