What's New in Version 10? RGA Enhancements
In addition to significant enhancements in the Version 10 Synthesis Platform, we also continue to expand the capabilities of individual Synthesis desktop applications. Here's a quick overview of the main new and improved features in RGA 10.
Optimum Overhaul Plot
For repairable systems analysis, the new Optimum Overhaul plot shows the economic life (which is the overhaul time that minimizes cost) vs. the useful life (which takes into account the reliability requirement for a given mission duration).
Crow Extended Future Projection
For analyses performed with the Crow Extended or Crow Extended – Continuous Evaluation model on developmental testing data, we’ve added the option to estimate the projected MTBF and failure intensity with a specified amount of additional testing (based on the fixes for the BD modes).
Color-Code Failure Types in System Operation Plots
In System Operation plots for Multiple Systems with Event Codes data using the Crow Extended model, the different types of events are now shown in different colors. Failures are red, Performance issues are blue, Quality issues are green and Implemented Fixes are yellow.
Mode Fix List in Event Reports
In the Event Reports for the Multiple Systems with Event Codes data sheet, we have added a new “Mode Fix List” that shows all of the systems that have a fix recorded for each failure mode.
Open Multiple Projects
In all Synthesis desktop applications that use a current project explorer (Weibull++/ALTA, RGA, DOE++, BlockSim/RENO and Lambda Predict), you can now choose to have multiple projects open simultaneously. When this feature is enabled, it’s easier than ever to import/export between projects using convenient drag and drop.
The Synthesis Workbook is a custom reporting tool that is built directly in to many Synthesis desktop applications (replacing Analysis Workbooks and Word Report Templates from prior versions). The new tool provides an updated interface, better integration between spreadsheet/word processing and an unlimited number of associated data sources.
In addition, if your organization chooses to implement a web-based portal for an enterprise database, you can now share selected reports to be accessible from any web-enabled device!
Interactive Plot Zoom
In Version 10, you can now examine sections of a plot up close with the new zoom function for plots. Simply point the mouse pointer over the area in the plot you want to zoom in or out of, and then rotate the mouse wheel. Press ESC to return to the original scale.
Share Analysis Info via Synthesis Enterprise Portal
If your organization chooses to implement the web-based Synthesis Enterprise Portal for an enterprise database, you can choose to publish selected analysis information to share with the team — including managers and colleagues who don't have Synthesis desktop applications installed — accessible via any web-enabled device.
