Can I add records "out of order" in Xfmea and RCM++?
Beginning with version 4.0.5, both
RCM++ allow you to
enter data for a lower-level record in the FMEA Worksheet View
without first creating the higher-level record(s) that it will
be associated with. For example, if you type the Cause
description in a row that does not yet have an Effect defined,
the software will now allow you to type the Cause description
and will enter a placeholder ("<undefined>") for the associated
Effect record, as shown next.
Note: The Worksheet View
also allows you to change the order of the columns by dragging
the column header into the desired position. By combining these
two features, you have the option to always enter causes before
effects, if desired.
