Extensive expansion on the Teamboard concept, now including:

Building on the success of Teamboards, v 08 00 includes extensive expansions on the Teamboard concept:

  • Major enhancement to all Walls (Gantt, Master Process, Assessments, Issues, Tasks, Reports, Files, Overview)
  • KPI’s and KPI Trends
  • Automation of TB Creation
  • ‘Touch’ Compliancy for all Team Board functions

Hashtag link and Hover Card annotations supported across Auros

  • Easily create links across most Auros object types. These links are automatically annotated with summary ‘Hover Cards,’ covering the significant details of the destination object without having to traverse the link itself.

Systems Engineering Parameter Traceability Maps

Two all-new, self-generating Parameter visualization tools: ‘Parameter Traceability Map’ and ‘Parameter Edge Map’. Together, these visualizations are useful in evaluating design change impact and traceability.

  • The Traceability Map allows users to explore the specific relationships of related Communities, K-PACs, and Parameters, starting with a given parameter of interest.
  • The Edge Map is a compact visualization of all relationships across the corpus of parameters for a given system.

AC Re-Query – Revised Work Flow

  • Re-query is a unique technology with Auros that allows the context of any given Assessment to be continuously updated as knowledge evolves. V 08 00 brings a new, and more intuitive, workflow to the Re-query process.

  • The addition of these inline filters makes it easier to locate and select values from a long list of values. This is a simple improvement which has a large impact on efficiency.

Auros Projects Synchronization from external master schedule

  • V 08 00 introduces a toolkit that enables the Auros concept of a ‘Project’ to be synchronized with external systems that may be the master source of project information including project and team timing.

Overall performance, usability, and visual enhancements

  • Through the upgrade, users will notice improved response times, computational efficiency, and visual enhancements.

We are continuously working to improve so that you can get the most out of the Auros system. If you have a suggestion, please share it with your Account Manager directly. We value your opinion as a part of the enhancement process.
