The documentation system joins the database and the CAD application to administer individual building data with the alphanumeric and graphic information on the CFM objects stored in the database. These will be visualized in a CAD plan when the system is used. Graphic objects are updated automatically; changes entered by other operators will be visible immediately. The graphic objects can, where necessary, be stored as CAD files and exported as DXF, DWG or HPGL files.
Several database clients can be set up on a single database server. It is possible, in turn, to set up multiple projects (such as facilities or properties) for each client; these projects can draw upon common master records (database regions).
Master record administration
Users can define all the cable manager and facility manager objects. One superior feature is the user's ability to define custom symbols and to modify them to suit the inventories, equipment, cable, ports, and database tables and attributes.
All the objects are organized in object classes, which are divided once again into primary and secondary classes. Object properties and definitions are passed to sub-objects. This means data storage free of redundancies and minimizing efforts involved in data entry.
The manager is available for the user to create and modify database tables at will and to implement logic examinations and special settings. The user can thus customize without outside support.
User-definable, tree-like class structure. The object and definition structure is established in the classes (field properties).
User administration and access authorization
The user administration features make it possible to grant individual rights to access tables, classes and objects.
The system can store, as desired, your own graphic or a foreign CAD graphic in vector and/or bitmap formats, including building layouts and plot plans. Acceptable formats include DWG, DXF, BMP, TIF, GIF and HPGL. AutoCAD plans can be read and written in DWG format. Graphic navigation using keymaps simplifies orientation in interlinked plans.
Application programming interfaces make it possible for the user to program and integrate his own applications or sub-functions.
The event interface can be used to capture events in order to generate your own dialogs. Examples of such applications are interfaces to telecommunications systems, NMS, utility management systems or helpdesk systems.
Data can be entered and maintained in variable, text-only database screens.
Microsoft Office Interfaces
An MDI (multiple document interface) is provided to edit simultaneously several different drawings with unrestricted data transfer. DDE and OLE support makes it possible to integrate business graphics from other windows applications such as Excel or other CAD drawings. All types of documents can be read and linked with objects (contracts, maintenance instructions, photos etc.).
This feature enables simple importing of alphanumeric data from outside databases.
Menu guidance for generating customized SQL reports.
Inquiry of free switching ways and jumperings at a connection of equipment. The switching ways and jumperings can be looked for criteria like the shortest way, number of distributor, minimal costs etc.
