Upon creating a new defect for one of your assets you can show the circumstance of the defect event. The circumstances can be related to the locomotive itself (e.g. the locomotive was in traction, or empty at the moment the defect occurred), or to external elements like the weather (was it snowing, raining or hot). You can apply multiple event circumstances to a defect.
To create the event circumstance types you first go to the administration page and head over to the "Maintenance" section. Go to "event circumstance types" and click on the "add" or "change" link.
Next, enter the name of the circumstance type and save your changes using the save button on the right hand side of the page.
Once saved you can use the circumstance type when filling out the defect form.
