There are several ways that the knowledge within Auros can help you get your work done. One way that this is achieved is through Value Tables. Value Tables are a feature within Basic K-PACs that demonstrate logical relationships between relevant attributes, variables, and/or parameters. By doing so, the Value Table benefits the user in three ways:
- The information provided helps to reduce confusion by establishing an accurate and easy to understand representation of the intended rule or requirements.
- The user can easily find and understand the rule/requirements, due to the standardized visual representation of this information across all K-PACs.
- Because Value Tables are programmatically executable, they help external programs (such as CAD) read the K-PAC to apply and evaluate the rule or boundary.
These three benefits can immensely increase the communication and understanding of the content within K-PACs.

Another way that the Auros system can help users to get their work done is through Assessment Controls (ACs). Assessment Controls are tools comprised of a group of constituent K-PACs. These tools are used to efficiently apply, evaluate, and track collections of K-PACs within the flow of work. The benefit they provide originates from tracking progress and standards. This benefit is increased further with the option to directly integrate this tool into CAD/PLM/CAE, allowing the K-PACs to auto-evaluate themselves with given input data. Additionally, ACs can act as an agent by continuously looking for new/updated K-PACs for evaluation in context.
Example of the Assessment Control layout
Add Value Table: Enter K-PAC Edit View → Navigate to the Value Table section → Click on “Value TableEditor”
Create Assessment Control: Assessments (Bottom left panel) → Create/Replicate (Top left panel) → Create New
