“Webasto has established SOX globally as the standard tool for FMEDA and FTA over the years. The user-friendly operation of the modules, flexible customisability in the event of sample status changes and a good overview of components and assemblies make it possible to work specifically on potential weak points in a system. The data server is also an essential component for collaborative, global working. These are a few key advantages that contribute to the efficient processing of complex analyses.”

Felix Barthel, Systems Senior Expert Safety Global, Webasto Group

„Fulfillment of Automotive SPICE™ and Functional Safety requirements is much easier with an integrated toolset like SOX.”

Is it possible to add files such as images, office files, and PDFs to SOX projects?

Yes, you can, for example, drag and drop image files or all office formats from Windows to all folders (FMEA, FMEDA, etc.) within the project archive. A copy is created and saved in the SOX database. Furthermore, these files may subsequently be linked to SOX elements such as Functions and Malfunctions. The relevant element will have a decorator added to it, making it easy to detect which files are thus linked to other files. Right-click on the item to view and open all linked files.

Is it possible for multiple users to work on the same project at the same time?

Yes, EnCo SOX offers extensive multi-user capabilities and real-time updates.

What are the minimum hardware requirements of the SOX server?

The minimum requirements are:

  • Ubuntu Server (from version 14.04 LTS or similar distributions), Windows Server 2012 or better
  • Oracle JDK is already integrated (external Oracle JDK could be used)
  • CPU: 4 cores
  • RAM: 12 GB (16 GB recommended)
  • Can be run in a virtual environment
  • Requires open port (e.g., standard port 2036) for access
  • Disk space: about 700MB – 1200MB for the client application, 5 GB for the embedded database

Can I import projects from a different software?

Yes, EnCo SOX offers various possibilities to import working files fron your previous software solutions. Use our contact form to get in touch so we can discuss the best solution to fit your individual needs.

Do you provide the SOX server landscape?

At the moment, we do not offer a customer Server. You will need to install a SOX server on your own server enviroment. We will, however, provide you with a test server to evaluate our software.
