Design Solutions Releases Version 3.6 of Acclaro® Designer
Brighton, MA, December 15, 2004 - Axiomatic
Design Solutions, Inc. (ADSI) announces another update to its Axiomatic Design
software solution that reduces the cost and time to bring new product and system
designs to market.
Improvements to Acclaro Designer® Version
The ability to store design range upper and lower limits and system range variables
and calculate the information content of FR/DP pairs
The ability to tag nodes, as indicated by a node background color change. Primarily with
design reviews in mind, this feature enables teams to tag nodes to indicate
which nodes have been reviewed, or which nodes need further discussion, as
a team prefers.
Global Find and Replace
Addition of a Glossary feature improves teams' ability to communicate effectively
and avert misunderstandings that often arise as a result of different understandings
of commonly used terms. The glossary enables users to define agreed upon definitions
of a design for access by all future users of the design.
Improvements to Linkages and Traceability:
Traceability has the following new functionality:
- Color highlighting in the explorer panel to show unlinked customer needs or requirements.
- It is now possible to jump from viewing a node within the trace view to viewing the node within its
domain view, in order to see how the node fits into the bigger picture design scheme.
- It is now possible to apply notes to a link itself, in addition to notes that apply to specific nodes.
Improvements to the Interface
make Acclaro quicker and even more intuitive to use
- The right-click menus now can add links to nodes in ANY view,
and users can attach risk and information content data to any DP node.
- Tool tips are enhanced to include the entire contents of the node.
- Domain management now has its own menu on the top menu bar with the capability to
create customized domain groupings.
- Formatting control for fonts and colors for each view have been enhanced.
- The Tools menu has been reorganized for ease of use.
