Observations allow you to collect additional information, feedback, or data for the AI to use during a diagnosis.
What is an observation?
It could be anything! Here are some examples:
- something that you can observe about the machine
- the result of a procedure that you run
- a reading
- choosing from a set of symptoms
- entering an error code
Each observation has a data type that is associated with it. InSkill will prompt for the observation with the correct type of input.
Text is a string like "MF_3214".
It could be used to enter a serial number or error code.
Count is a whole number or integer 1, 3, 57.
How many samples have been processed?
What is the odometer reading?
A reading is a number with decimal places like 3.14
What is the pressure reading?
This represents a choice that is either yes or no, true or false.
Is the LED blinking?
Is there a leak?
A list is a set of options. These options could be anything you configure.
For example, it could be a set of symptoms or the color options for a light.
A list is better than inputs if there is a limited number of choices.
Lists allow a user to select a description but store an error code, for example. This is done like so:
5002:Gantry home error
5720:Limit switch failed
The list of options displays the text after the : but inserts the value into the data set
