Components and failure modes in the BOM and FMEDA are decorated with a document icon if objects have respective assignments.

Decoration of a component with a document icon
  • [SX-4685] Solved missing modul description after bom import with template.

Description value in BOM template will now properly be imported to modules.


Version 3.0.4

Important notice:

  • server installations need to be updated due to adaptations in FMEDA report [SX4598]. An update script is available. No change to the database is required!
  • Due to [SX-4643] FIT value calculations of hybrid circuits (IEC62380) may change after installation of the new version. Analogue to the calculation of Ï€ α of ICs (IEC62380) the value of (|α α-α c|) 1,68 is set to 0 instead of 1, if α s and/or α c is not set.

SOX2 v.3.0.4 Release provides the following improvements compared to SOX2 v.3.0.3:

  • [SX-4487] Store SOX2 configuration in a dedicated directory to avoid class loading issues after installation of a SOX2 update.
  • [SX-4585] Add refactoring to change the type of a requirement.
  • [SX-4598] Calculate and display the component DC according to ISO26262. Report respective components in FMEDA report.
  • [SX-4602] Add further options for PMHF calculation (according to the ISO26262).
  • [SX-4609] Remove deprecated failure mode catalog locking feature.
  • [SX-4611] Automatically extends width of safety goal column after adding system or hardware effects to the FMEDA.
  • [SX-4613] Add keyboard binding CTRL + R for creation of requirements.
  • [SX-4634] Add context menu for editing of requirement module properties.
  • [SX-4635 Remove the type decoration of requirements in the hierarchy view.
  • [SX-4636] Use a specific icon to display requirements which are part of a decomposition.
  • [SX-4638] Display localized label for FMEA action group and action set nodes.
  • [SX-4639] Add context menu for adding new function in FMEDA Function-View
  • [SX-4643] The default values of substrate and component expansion (|α s-α c|) 1,68 for hybrid circuits is set to 0 instead of 1. Note that this change may change the calculation of the FIT value of respective components in the case that no attributes for substrate and component are provided.
  • [SX-4649] Add icon decoration for SOX2 objects with associated documents.
  • [SX-4650] Display detailed information upon drop of FMEA malfunction as hardware effect to FMEDA if malfunctions system element does not match the target module.
  • [SX-4651] Display detailed information upon drop of FMEA malfunction as hardware effect to FMEDA if malfunction has already been assigned. Add information to indicate that only safety relevant malfunctions are considered when system effects are determined
  • [SX-4652] Add option to automatically remove deleted components upon BOM import.
  • [SX-4656] Show detailed repository information upon click of the repository item in the status line.

SOX2 v.3.0.4 Bug fixes:

  • [SX-4557] Show the correct BID for requirements in the link module view.
  • [SX-4567] Solve D&D issue in FMEA when objects are selected with CTRL + Shift modifier.
  • [SX-4597] Correctly display and update the safety level decorator in UML diagrams.
  • [SX-4599] Recalculate metrics after changing the DC of diagnoses.
  • [SX-4600] Delete temporary files after project import.
  • [SX-4605] Allow opening of imported documents after restart of SOX2.
  • [SX-4608] Update the FIT values of components after re-import of the BOM Excel file.
  • [SX-4610] Show tooltip for coupled effects comments.
  • [SX-4616] Persist the value per year of manufacturing for components.
  • [SX-4618] Do not duplicate requirement traces after import the SOX2 project.
  • [SX-4626] Synchronize the text property between requirements and their respective SysML equivalent.
  • [SX-4646] Reset the state of a component during copy process.
  • [SX-4659] Allow D&D of FMEA system elements to BOM.
