Batch Append the greatest data integrity tool

I’m not going to lie I head up sales for Isograph in North America. I often get labelled with some of the tactics sales people use in my industry. The best advice I can give to a prospective client is to try models using your own data and information to see how they turn out. Also, check the calculations and software options to ensure the software product will do what you want it to do not only today but next year when your model has matured. Although I am a sales person and my lips are moving I’m not lying here.

Batch append is one of those points that one should consider in a mature software product. How are you going to combine the work of many individual engineers into a final model you can use for certification or to present to management? If your tool cannot do this run for the hills!

Sometimes, when working on a large system model, you need to share the load, and split up the fault tree development to different people. But then the time comes to combine everyone’s work together. How do we do that? And how do we make sure that our master fault tree contains the most up-to-date information from each engineer’s fault trees?

This excerpt from our in-development online training course gives a quick insight into using the Batch Append feature to automate the linking of fault trees from different user’s projects, and how to keep the linked file up-to-date with the latest changes.
