Data Management Tools
RCM++'s flexible data management capabilities can save time on data entry, help to ensure consistency among analyses and even provide brainstorming tools that will improve the quality of your RCM analyses.
User-Friendly Editing Tools
RCM++ makes it easier than ever to enter and manage your analysis data. You have the option to multi-select records directly within the hierarchical tree views and to drag and drop records to desired locations. The software also offers a paste special command that allows you to paste records with or without their dependents.
In addition to text fields, the flexible find and replace utility also works for number fields, date fields and even drop-down lists. The spell checker highlights spelling mistakes while you are typing and offers customizable spelling dictionaries for all supported languages.
Option to Undo Last Delete
You can undo (cancel) the last delete action that you have performed in an analysis project. We'll still ask if you want to proceed with the deletion, but now you have another opportunity to restore data that may have been deleted by mistake!
Easy to Navigate Between Records and Configure Settings
The ribbons each each record properties window provides convenient access to view or create the next record in the analysis without having to keep closing and opening new windows. The ribbon also makes it easy to see the configurable settings for the current analysis project.
Linked or Attached Files
You can use the Links and Attachments feature to keep related information from external data files together with the rest of the analysis (such as flowcharts, design drawings and procedure instructions).
Select Existing "Pick Lists" and New Smart Add
For any text field, RCM++ provides easy access to a list of existing descriptions from specified data sources. Each list can be sorted or filtered to fit your specific needs. For example, the utility can provide a list of failure modes that contain the word "fatigue" or a list of maintenance tasks in a phrase set distributed to all analysts.
Now in Version 10, the Smart Add utilities make it easier than ever to quickly find and copy item names or FMEA descriptions from other similar analyses. The configurable filter settings can consider category, part number, name and/or keywords to show you only the most relevant results.
Importing from Existing Analyses or Templates
RCM++ provides two flexible interfaces for finding and importing information from existing analyses or predefined templates. One utility allows you to browse through the data and choose the items and/or analysis records that you want to import. A second utility allows you to search for the records you want to import. For example, this tool can provide a list of items where the part name contains "Battery" AND the supplier name contains "Acme" OR "XYZ, Inc."
Import/Export via Excel
The Templates Manager feature makes it easier than ever to import a system configuration or functional failure analysis from an external data file. Now you can create and manage your own customized Excel templates to fit the exact configurations of your existing files. We have also added the ability to import system hierarchy and failure analysis data together from the same file, as well as the option to import data from existing DVP&R, control plan and DRBFM worksheets.
