revision tracking methods are available in Xfmea?
provides three methods of revision tracking, as follows:
- For each item,
function, failure, effect, cause, action and control record, the
application displays the date/time of the last change made to the record
in a status bar at the bottom of the corresponding Properties window (e.g.
Item Properties window). For databases with Login Security enabled,
the application also displays the name of the user who last made changes
to the record.
- The application
allows you to manage baseline versions of the database, which are
essentially complete backups of the database at a particular point in
time that you can roll back to (or restore) when desired. This can be
done in the Revision Tracking and Management window and is in addition
to (and different from) the existing database backup functionality
included in the software.
- The Revision
Tracking and Management window also displays a log of the date/time for
every login to the database. For Login Secure databases, the application
will also display the information on the user who performed the login.
Have additional subjects been added to ReliaSoft's training seminars?
Two new courses have been added to the seminar
training schedule. The new courses are:
Advanced System Analysis and BlockSim
ReliaSoft's standard System Reliability course (RS403)
presents an introduction to and overview of System Reliability
analysis. ReliaSoft's Advanced System Analysis course considerably
expands upon these basics in a three-day intensive theoretical and
hands-on course (utilizing
BlockSim) and exposes the attendee to the advanced concepts,
principles and requirements for performing advanced quantitative
The first half of the course presents a comprehensive coverage
of system analysis theory and principles while the latter half
utilizes BlockSim to apply the covered principles through
numerous examples and case studies. Additional information can
be found at
Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis and Xfmea
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Failure Mode,
Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) are methodologies designed
to identify potential failure modes for a product or process, to
assess the risk associated with those failure modes, to rank the
issues in terms of importance and to identify and carry out
corrective actions to address the most serious concerns. ReliaSoft's
software facilitates the FMEA/FMECA process and provides flexible
data management and reporting capabilities.
This course provides a basic overview of FMEA/FMECA analysis
procedures with emphasis on the use of the Xfmea software to
carry out such analyses. Additional information can be found at
