Gauge

There are two types of gauge diagrams. For both types, the following applies:

  • green = falls within the norm value

  • yellow = the warning boundary has been exceeded, but not yet the error boundary

  • red = the error boundary has been exceeded

Gauge exceeding the norm

Values set up here are absolute values. In the example above, the following values are used:

  • Norm value = 60

  • Warning boundary = 70 (the warning boundary has been exceeded when the value is greater than 70.)

  • Error boundary = 80 (the error boundary has been exceeded when the value is greater than 80.)

It is also possible to set up a gauge to warn you when the values fall below a certain boundary, instead of above it.

  • Norm value = 100

  • Warning boundary = 80 (the warning boundary has been exceeded when the value is less than 80.)

  • Error boundary = 70 (the error boundary has been exceeded when the value is less than 70.)

Gauge with an anomaly from the norm

The norm value is an absolute value, while the other two values are the ranges around the norm value. In the example above, the following values are used:

  • Norm value = 35

  • Warning boundary = 10 (The warning boundary has been exceeded when the value is less than 25 or greater than 45.)

  • Error boundary = 15 (The error boundary has been exceeded when the value is less than 10 or greater than 60.)
