During the drafting process, procedures are authored within the Tempo web application as procedure templates. Once a procedure template has been authored and approved, it can be assigned for execution as a procedure run. (Customers that use the MES package can also add procedures to batch templates; procedures may be arranged within specific unit operations within the batch template. Once a batch template has been authored and approved, it can be assigned for execution as a batch run. Each batch run contains one or more procedure runs.)

As soon as an operator begins procedure execution, the system creates a summary of the procedure run within the Tempo web app. Depending on the stage a procedure run is in, certain actions can be taken from the procedure run in the web app, such as assigning additional operators to execute the run or submitting a completed procedure run for approval.

Accessing the Procedure Runs page

From the left navigation panel, click cloud Tempo > Procedures > Runs. A list of the procedure runs that the user can view or edit displays.


Access to procedure runs is limited based upon a user's role and whether they have been assigned to a specific procedure run.

From this page, users can access the following functions:

  • Manage or review an existing procedure run.
  • Customize filter views to fit display preferences.
    • Click Columns to select which columns to display in the list.
      • Columns reflect specific information stored on a procedure run within the system, including information such as Title, Initiator, State, and Date Started.
    • Click filter_list Filter next to a column of your choice, then select a filter criteria and enter a term in the search bar to filter results.
    • Click Reset Filters to reset the filter view.

Creating a new procedure run

Tempo automatically creates a summary of a procedure run within the Tempo web app as soon as an operator begins executing that procedure. (If a procedure is part of a batch run, Tempo creates the procedure run when the operator begins executing that specific procedure within the batch run.)

Understanding procedure run tabs

Once a procedure run has been created, users can access the run by clicking the procedure title on the Procedure Runs page (cloud Tempo > Procedures > Runs).

Each tab located at the top of a procedure run provides access to specific information about the run:

SummaryDisplays high-level information about the Progress, Duration, Users, Details, Exceptions/A-Notes and Material Outputs of the run.
AssignProvides the ability to assign users to execute this procedure and view assignees.
ExceptionsDisplays any exceptions triggered while executing the procedure run.
ParametersDisplays a list of any parameters added to this run's procedure template.
StepsDisplays a list of the steps that make up this procedure run with information about execution progress.
ResourcesDisplays information about the resources added to this run's procedure template.
A-NotesDisplays the type and details of any A-Note(s) created during execution.
HistoryProvides a history of key actions related to the procedure run.
AttachmentsProvides access to upload or view documents attached to the procedure run.
