  • - IT Services estimates where the Total Weight input is filled out on the End User Services New Projects cost object.
  • - Software estimates using COSMIC Function Points and any of the following languages: C#, Java, Oracle, PHP, SAP or VB.
  • - Software estimates using Source Lines of Code or Functional Size and any of the following languages: ABAP, SAP, Asp.NET, C#, Fourth Generation, HTML, MySQL or SQL.

Attention Unmanned Space Users

Are you currently, or soon, working with Unmanned Space-related estimates?  If so, good news here.

You may have read in a recent blog that we have significantly enhanced our unmanned space complexity choices.  We have essentially taken what we’ve always had available offline and automated them within the Hardware Catalog’s Equipment Type Calculator. 

In fact, the latter now has more complexities as well as heritage & weight-split calculation… all within very intuitive drop-down menus for both Earth Orbiting and Planetary missions, for Spacecraft Bus and Payload applications.

(Again, if you’re not involved with Unmanned Space or won’t be in the foreseeable future, then disregard what’s below here... and stand by for TruePlanning 2016!)

These new complexities are contained within an updated hardware catalog that will be placed on your computer with this update. To use the new catalog, after you have updated TruePlanning to version 2014 SR2 14.2 (build 5884.1) with the download above, follow the 5-step process given by our online “Importing an Updated Catalog” instructions which will open up in a new tab.

·         To summarize, once you’ve closed out TruePlanning per step #1, you will need to back up any existing files saved in your current database, per step #2’s “Exporting Projects from the Database” section.

·         {However, if you already have your files backed up as export files, then this requirement is moot and you can skip steps #2 & #3, perform step #4, then skip step #5.}

·         Regarding project export, you can do so individually for each file with our standard files-export function.  Or, if you have multiple files saved in your database, you have the option of a mass export using the “TPTool” explained in this section. 

Once your saved files (if any) are exported, you next delete them from your database, per step #3. 

You are now ready to replace your hardware catalog with the new version per step #4. 
The latter is guided by the instructions’ “Importing the Catalog” section.

Finally, per step#5, you then reload your saved export files, per the Importing Projects into the Database section.

This overall process is actually straightforward and reasonably painless.  But as always, call us if you need help: 1.800.43.PRICE (77423).  Then get ready to launch into the fidelity of your Unmanned Space estimating!
