Heard it through the Grapevine.
organizations find themselves unable to compete against
another competitor with a superior product they tend to do two
things: avoid their product’s deficiencies and
trivialize their competitor’s advantages. We’ve
heard this very phenomena coming from our competitors about
Atlas’s tool suite.
to list a few:
"The what kind of rules? Yeah, automated schematic data
capture is risky, I heard its not very accurate. So its pretty
much impossible to automate the derivation of the S1000D
wiring module from a static schematic diagram."
our competitors don't understand is Wirestrace Studio does
exactly that: Automate the derivation of the S1000D
wiring modules and produce wire traces from data captures of
static schematic diagrams and we have proven its possible,
accurate and reliable on aircraft like the C-130!
“Who needs editing capabilities in a wire tracing tool,
that’s what CGM editors are for."
That they would force their customer to have to move to
an editing tool and then navigate to the diagram
that’s open in their tracing tool, where they then have
to make changes that could impact existing database entries
and require unique identifiers, all of which the user has to
synchronize somehow. And what’s worse is what if the
user has to undo the changes?
a better solution it is to have the editing capabilities right
in the tool suite that the users is using to build the diagram
traces that can automate all the necessary database entries,
and if needed roll back changes to any previous state.
“What? Progress status and diagram locking, who needs
it? Your staff or a good project lead could keep track of
all the diagrams’ progress with just a spreadsheet. And
don’t worry about your staff accidentally stepping on
each other’s toes because that will rarely if ever
happen. I mean if you really want that there are third party
tools you can use as well.”
large projects not to be able to track individual diagram or
project progress status and produce on the fly reports is
unconscionable! How can you manage what you can’t
measure? In projects composed of hundreds or thousands of
diagrams staff accidentally ending up working on the same
there is no diagram management in place. To direct your
customer to a third party tool where they would have to build
interfaces and adapt the tools to work with each other is
“Why would you treat wire harnesses or bundles any
differently than other wire lines on the diagram? If you want
the point to point trace lines through the harness just place
hidden lines under the wire harness line.”
is laughable! Placing hidden lines to treat wire harnesses or
bundles just creates needless work and becomes very difficult
to manage, especially when there could be hundreds of wires in
a wire bundle or harness! Wiretrace Studio treats harnesses or
bundles without the need for any manual handling or the use of
messy hidden lines.
“There's a difference between a continuity trace and a
current load trace? That's news to me."
our competition has said that...
stop here but the list does go on. What our competitors don’t
get about Atlas Dynamics is that we’re thinking about
how to make our customers more efficient and productive so
