Secret might be the wrong word to use here, it could be a matter of just asking myself or technical support the right questions. Even if you’ve been using Reliability Workbench, Availability Workbench, AttackTree+, or Network Availability Prediction for years, you’re probably still finding new features and tips and tricks to help you out in the software. Maybe one day you discovered a time-saver and thought to your self “what else can this software do to make my day easier?”
While there are plenty of helpful features in Isograph’s software to make your day easier, perhaps none is so powerful, incredibly useful, and so under-utilized as Plugins and the DLL. These features allow you to extend the power of Reliability Workbench, Availability Workbench, Attack Tree, and NAP tools to absurd heights. From creating macros for accomplishing tedious tasks, to automating fault tree construction, and even adding new features to the software that we haven’t even thought about, the Plugins and DLL can do it.

We have collected commonly asked questions by our 1000’s of users. Some of the questions that we’ll answer along the way include:
Why do my cut sets show gate names with an asterisk next to them?
OK, so I enter a “failure rate.” Is that failures per… hour? Year? Geological epoch? What are the units?
This fault tree takes ages to calculate. Can I speed it up?
Fault tree uses approximation methods for solving the tree? Do I have any control over that?
My computer crashed and I lost 3 hours of work! Can I create automatic backups of my project?
What if I want to see MTTF on my fault tree, instead of Q?
I have a plotter. How do I print the whole tree on one piece of paper?
Can I force scientific notation in the results?
What if I don’t want to delete the inputs to a gate when I delete the gate?
I really love the font Comic Sans. Can I use that in my fault tree?
Also, chartreuse is my favorite color. How do I set that as default?
How do I set default options, so I don’t have to reset these every time I start a new project?
We’ll also look at the useful and often-overlooked Report Options. Did you know that you can force the diagram to be black & white for printouts? Or make the fault tree symbols bigger? Or change the order of the pages?
