Synthesis: Integration to Empower the Reliability Organization

Major Enhancements in Version 10!

RCM++ is integrated into the powerful Synthesis Platform, which offers reliability practitioners the best of both worlds: analysis tools that are optimized to fully meet the individual user's needs for a particular set of analysis methods, plus integration into a centralized repository that is shared by users throughout the organization and facilitates integration between analysis tools. 

Synthesis Connections for RCM++

Connecting the Synthesis Applications

Your interaction with each Synthesis application will be similar to your experience with previous versions — each application continues to be a full-featured tool that has been expertly designed to meet your needs for all aspects of the analysis methodology. But now it is easier than ever to share relevant information between applications and analyses.

Specifically for RCM++, the Synthesis Platform gives you the ability to:

Centralized Data Storage and Flexible Permissions

RCM++ continues to offer centralized data storage that allows multiple users to work cooperatively on analysis projects. A special "enterprise" license/installation is no longer necessary — in the Synthesis version, all users can choose which type of database will provide the back-end data storage for any given repository:

Standard RepositoryA Standard Repository is easy to create and maintain without any special IT infrastructure or support. This built-in relational database file format  — which requires nothing extra to buy or install — can be placed on your own computer for a single-user implementation or in a network location that's accessible to multiple users.

In Version 10, we also offer a new Synthesis File Format (*.rsf10) for individuals who are working alone in a single application — it emulates the file saving behavior of a document-centered application (such as Excel or ReliaSoft Version 7).

Enterpise RepositoryAn Enterprise Repository requires implementation of Microsoft SQL Server® or Oracle®, but it is a more robust platform that can store much more analysis information in the same database and supports access by many more simultaneous users. (Licensing, support and maintenance for SQL Server®/Oracle® are not included with Synthesis. Express versions of these database platforms are also supported. )

Single-user, multi-user or enterprise... you decide! [Learn more...]

Synthesis Enterprise Portal

If your organization chooses to implement a web-based Synthesis Enterprise Portal (SEP) for an enterprise database, the entire team – including managers and colleagues who don't have Synthesis desktop applications installed – will be able to access key analysis and project management details from any web-enabled device.

This includes personalized messages, assigned actions, key performance metrics, selected analysis reports, graphical charts and many other tools that will help to keep your reliability and maintainability projects on track.

Reliability Project Planner and Action Tracking

Formerly available only in Xfmea/RCM++/RBI, the Project Planner is now integrated into all Synthesis desktop applications (except MPC). This reliability-focused project management tool has been greatly expanded to include resource utilization tracking, dynamic timelines, at-a-glance status panels, and much more.

We have also greatly expanded the actions management and tracking capabilities for better integration with the project plan, and with the new Test Plan feature in Xfmea/RCM++/RBI.

In addition, if you've implemented the SEP, both project planning and actions tracking features can now be accessed from any web-enabled device!

Synthesis Explorer, Categories and Filters

A host of new and improved features in Version 10 make it easier to find, filter, sort and group the wide array of analyses and resources in the Synthesis Platform. Some of the most significant enhancements include:

Synthesis Explorer

The new Synthesis Explorer offers enormous flexibility for reviewing all of the different analyses that are stored in the current database. You can save customized "views" that configure the grid for a particular purpose (e.g., all analyses related to a particular component, all analyses modified in the last week, etc.). You can also present the information in a wide variety of graphical dashboard charts.

Item Categories and Filters

In addition to the configurable project categories and filters that were available in prior versions, we have added flexible new item categories and filters for managing folios, diagrams, system hierarchy items and resources.

Synthesis Identifiers

In Version 10, the Synthesis identifiers (formerly called "global identifiers") have been added for project explorer items (e.g., folios, diagrams, plots, etc.) and there is now one standard set of identifier fields for all relevant locations.

Personalized Portal for Messages and Project Status

In all Synthesis desktop applications, the My Portal panel provides quick access to messages, assigned actions and other information that may be of personal interest to you while working in the Synthesis Platform.

Now in Version 10, if your organization chooses to implement a web-based Synthesis Enterprise Portal (SEP) for an enterprise database, you can also access many of these same features from any web-enabled device.
