Action Level Exceedance II - Percent Variance

Report Name: Action Level Exceedance II - Percent Variance

File Name: EarthSoft.Reports.Library.51729.dll

Dependencies: saved Analytical Results II Report

Software: EQuIS Professional and EQuIS Enterprise

Source: EQuIS Professional install, EQuIS Enterprise install

Language: English

Output Type: Excel1

 

Description: The Action Level Exceedance II - Percent Variance report is designed to flag analytical results within a given EDD that vary by more than the listed percentage from the historical average for each chemical and location.

 

Installation Instructions: This report assembly is part of the EQuIS Professional installation. No additional installation steps are necessary.

 

Overview:

The allowable percentage of variation is listed for each chemical in DT_ACTION_LEVEL_PARAMETER. An action_level and action_level_min are calculated by adding and subtracting the percentage amount from the average of the historical result values for each location.

 

In addition, the report can be run as an EQuIS Information Agent (EIA) as each new EDD is loaded (see EZView for information on setting a report up as an EIA).

Report Parameters

EDD

Select one or more EDDs by Ebatch.

Variance


Number of Results

Enter the Number of Results you want to use to calculate the average value.

Start Date

Select a Start Date for the period you want to use to calculate the average values of results.

End Date

Select a End Date for the period you want to use to calculate the average values of results.

Action Level


Action Level(s)

Select one or more Action Levels. Leaving this field blank will compare all applicable action levels.

Comparison


Operator

Select an operator: <, <=, >, >=.

Unit

Select a comparison unit: action_level_unit or report_result_unit.

Significant Figures

Select the desired number of significant figures.

Compare to Action Level Before Applying to Significant Figures

Select Yes to compare results Before significant figures are applied.  Select No to compare results After significant figures are applied.

Flagging


Show Results

Select Show All to show all results (with exceedances flagged) OR Show Only Exceedances OR Show With Any Exceedance to show results which exceed any of the selected action levels.

Flag Non-Detects

Please select Yes to flag non-detect results whose detection limit exceeds the action level OR No to not flag them.

Exceedance Flag

Character for flagging exeedances. Leaving blank will return only exceedances in the report output.

Warning Flag

Character for flagging warnings.

Matching Default

Section for default matching conditions. Default values for this section are True. The default depth type is Sample Depth.

Matching Special

Section for special matching conditions. Default values for this section are False. The Geologic Unit section also includes parameters for Geologic Unit Code or Type and Geologic Unit Columns and do not have defaults.

Include

Section for additional parameters that can be included in the report output. The default values for these parameters is False.

 

Variance Parameters:

 

The historical result average is determined from the Variance input parameters:

 

Number of Results: Count of results to include in the historical average calculation, starting from the most recent within the specified date range.

 

Start/End Dates: The sample date range of results used to determine the historical result average.

 

Action Level(s): An action level must be selected for the report to run. For this report, only one action level may be selected. The other Action Level parameters work as in the other Action Level Exceedance II reports.

 

Variance Calculations:

 

Example Percent Variance Action Level:

 

30003.action.level.example

 

 

The report action_level and action_level_min are calculated as follows:

action_level = result average + (percent * result average)

action_level_min = result average - (percent * result average)

 

In this example, the calculations would look like this:

 


 

Example Percent Variance Action Level

SYS_LOC_CODE

RESULT_AVERAGE

ACTION_LEVEL_MIN

ACTION_LEVEL

B-30

15.67

15.67 - (0.05 * 15.67) = 14.9

15.67 + (0.05 * 15.67) = 16.5

B-31

15.31

15.31 - (0.05 * 15.31) = 14.5

15.31 + (0.05 * 15.31) = 16.1

B-32

0.0

0.0 + (0.05 * 0.0) = 0.0

0.0 + (0.05 * 0.0) = 0.0

 

 

Example Action Level without "percent" or "%" in the DT_ACTION_LEVEL_PARAMETER.UNIT:

 

30003.action.level.example2

 

In this example, the calculations would look like this:

15.67

15.67 - 5 = 10.7

15.67 + 5 = 20.7

B-31

15.31

15.31 - 5 = 10.3

15.31 + 5 = 20.3

B-32

0.0

0.0 - 5 = -5.0

0.0 + 5 = 5.0

Notes:

oA summary of calculations are recorded in alp_remark consisting of  Variance, Average of Values and Number of Values.

oIf the number of historical results in the date range specified is less than the entered number for an EDD result, the alp_remark of the output will show how many historical results were used in the calculations.

oIf the number of historical results in the date range specified is more than the entered number for an EDD result, the most recent historical results are used in the calculations.

oThe data of the selected EDD itself will never be used in the historical average calculation, even if the sample dates of the EDD are within the Variance date range.

oThe SYS_LOC_CODE, CAS_RN and MATRIX_CODE of the EDD results are used to find matching historical results.
