Development Job Overview
Development jobs help manage work done by formulation developers. When using ‘Add a New Formulation’ a Development job is created at the same time and contains additional details about the formulation development (if entered).
Once a development job has been added a User can be assigned to work on it. Users can find jobs using ‘Search for Development Jobs’ and from the results page can perform most development job actions. Other actions can be performed from the ‘View Job Detail’ screen.
These actions are available under the Manage and Develop buttons. They include:
From the Manage button the following actions are possible, depending on the status of the job:
Edit: Opens the job, for details to be edited. Please note- a version comment is required and a new version of the job is created
Unassign: Removes the job from the current developer
Assign: Assigns the job to a specified developer
Reassign: Removes the job from current developer and assigns it to a specified developer
Abandon: Abandons the job, removing work requirements
From the Develop button the following actions are possible, depending on the status of the job:
Accept: which indicates the User is prepared to undertake the work
Start Work: Accepts the job and starts ‘Add a new formulation’ process
New Formulation: Starts ‘Add a new formulation’ process
Load WIP: Loads formulation associated with the job with Work In Progress status. If there is more than one, a choice is given
Propose Job Responses: (from Develop button in View Job Detail) Indicates which formulations developed are to be considered as the response(s) to the job. For example, 10 formulations may have been developed as part of the Job, of which only 2 are to be considered as meeting the requirements specified. Therefore the Developer would propose 2 formulations only
Proposals Complete: Indicates that the developer has completed their work and will not be proposing further job responses
Reject: Refuses the job and returns it to the User who allocated it
Other actions available when you select ‘View Job Detail’ and see the ‘View a Development Job’ screen include:
Review: This is a final review for a job where review was required, either as part of the job specification or due to failed suitability check. Proposals must be complete before the final Review can take place. If review fails, the job remains in progress. If review passes, job is completed
View Job Detail: Opens the job detail of the job in focus. From here it is possible to perform Review actions and additional Develop actions, including:
Please note- a job can have multiple formulations associated with it. One or more formulations can be Proposed as the answer to a development job.
