Queries, Reports, Charts and Diagrams
Of course, Xfmea makes it easy to generate reports in the tabular worksheet format that is commonly used for FMEAs and related analyses. However, because all of the analysis information is stored in a relational database, Xfmea is able to go beyond these basic worksheets to provide a complete range of options for presenting the data in ways that will effectively communicate results and facilitate decision-making.
Configurable Queries and Print-Ready Reports
Use the Templates Manager to manage predefined and customized templates that can be made available to all database users, applied to any data set and incorporated into any print-ready report document.
The Query Utility window is a powerful analysis tool that makes it easy to find and open specific sections of the analysis. It is also a flexible custom reporting tool that allows you to create and manage saved queries that meet your particular presentation requirements. You can:
- Query by any type of record in any type of analysis.
- Specify multiple search criteria using the Boolean operators AND/OR along with drop-down lists to determine the matching requirement (e.g., contains, is not empty, is greater than).
- Choose which record properties will be included in the results and customize the column order, column widths and heading labels.
The Reports window makes it easy to build report documents that include the predefined report forms, custom report forms and/or custom queries that will be most effective to present your analysis results. Since you can generate these documents directly in Microsoft Word or Excel, it is easy to customize and distribute reports without a specialized report editor or viewer.
Now in Version 10, you can save generated reports with the project, which enables all users to view/print the same report documents. In addition, if your organization chooses to implement a web-based Synthesis Enterprise Portal (SEP) for an enterprise database, you can also publish these reports to the portal (in Word, Excel, PDF or MHTML format), where they can be accessed from any web-enabled device.
The Synthesis Dashboard is a highly customizable tool for graphical presentation of data (including grids, bar charts, pie charts, gauges, maps, etc.). Now in Version 10, you can create customized dashboards to present data from FMEA and FMRA analyses in Xfmea/RCM++/RBI. In addition, if your organization chooses to implement a web-based portal for an enterprise database, you can now share selected dashboards to be accessed from any web-enabled device!
