TruePlanning 2016 Users,

This software update (Update build 16.0.6584.2) will address the issues outlined in the Product Known Issues section of the website resources (here). 

The update includes these following changes to the application:

  • - Changes to support new security compliance measures, such as AppLocker and removal of unsupported third-party software.
  • - ModelCenter plugin update for performance and usability when loading TruePlanning projects and selecting inputs and outputs to the model.
  • - Improvements to copy, paste and delete performance and memory allocation when handling large projects.
  • - Various bug fixes and application improvements.

This update will automatically update various catalogs. Estimates may change but will be more accurate as well as a result of these changes. The conditions by which estimates will change are as follows:

  • - Hardware estimates using fractional production quantities.
  • - Space Missions estimates using large systems on the Space Thermal Protection cost object.

There are a few other important things to note about this release and future releases:

  • - Any global data (currency rates, escalations, favorites, etc.) that were changed from their defaults will be lost during update process and should be backed up beforehand.
  • - Migration from all TruePlanning 2012 versions and older will not work with this update due to no longer supported software so users should contact PRICE support if they need assistance moving projects from databases in those versions into more recent versions of the product.

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!
