What's New in Version 11? RGA Enhancements
Here’s a quick overview of the main new and improved features in RGA Version 11.
Discrete Growth Planning Folio
RGA's new discrete growth planning folio allows you to create a single- or multi-phase reliability growth testing plan for discrete data (i.e., data from one-shot devices with only two possible outcomes from the test: success or failure).
The folio allows you to make estimates about whether you will be able to achieve you reliability goal with a given management strategy or to determine what strategy will be necessary to meet the goal.
Improved Performance for Spreadsheets
Version 11 brings an updated look to spreadsheets, and improved speed performance when opening, calculating and plotting data folios.
More Flexibility in Project Manager
Version 11 brings enhancements to the Project Manager and Project Explorer to make it even easier to browse or search for a particular project or analysis folio.
The project filter now gives the option to select specific projects (instead of only filtering by specific criteria such as "Project Owner"). If you’re working in an enterprise repository with many projects, this makes it easier for you to quickly access the specific projects of interest to you.
Minimize Visual Clutter
We've added a new option in the Application Setup to hide empty or unused folders in the Project Explorer.
Improved Folder Organization
In Weibull++/ALTA and RGA, the folders in the Project Explorer are now arranged by analysis type, making it easier to find and keep related analyses all in the same folder.
More Target Markers in Plots
When applicable, plots in RGA allow you to display a target marker on the plot to highlight a value of interest such as the MTBF, failure intensity (FI), reliability or unreliability. In Version 11, you can now display up to 5 target markers.
Major Enhancements for the Synthesis Enterprise Portal (SEP)
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.
In Version 11, the SEP has a fresh new look with responsive design for better performance on mobile devices and more control for quickly accessing the information that's of interest to you. The website provides at-a-glance summaries of the project plans, actions, messages, metrics, dashboards and reports that you need to stay on top of, and makes it easy to drill down for more detail. It also allows users throughout your organization to view the FMEAs and published reports created in ReliaSoft's Xfmea/RCM++/RBI without having the desktop application installed.
