9 PRO-TECH Users Group PRO-TECH Future –BIM (Building Information Modeling) –UI Upgrade –Integration Seamless Flow! PRO-TECH Future

10 10 Change Management Functions Track Changes to the Original Project via Revisions (Working Projects). Track changes to key items (those that affect costs): –Cost, Preps, Modifiers, Print Codes, Order Codes –Track changes in Estimating Detailed Materials –Track changes in Scheduling Detailed Materials –Track changes in Estimating Detailed Hardware –Track changes in Scheduling Detailed Hardware –Track changes in Edit Project Hardware –Track changes in Bulk Materials (no Revision Hints)

11 11 Change Management Features Manage a Set of Revisions to a Project. Original and Working Projects Create, Approve, Cancel, or Delete a Revision to a Project. Revision History via Highlighted fields and Pop-up Revision Hints. Modifications to the User Interface: Visual indication when a Project is under Revision.

12 12 Change Management Reports Material Delta Cost Report: Shows the changes to Door and Frame costs for the project based on the Revision. Hardware Delta Cost Report: Shows the changes to Hardware cost for the project based on the Revision. Revision Report: Details all changes (additions, deletions, and modifications) to an opening made under the specified revision. Approved Revision Summary Report: Presents the Delta cost and positive Delta costs of each approved revision from the original project.

13 13 Change Management Demo – Tim Armstrong

14 14 Change Management Futures Apply Approved Revisions to Open Working Projects Add Revision Hints to Bulk Material Screen Track Changes in Project Hardware Management and Project Material Management Track Changes to non-pricing data Cost Summary with Deltas for each revision Multiple Revision Delta Reports Separate Database for Working Projects Archive Project Revisions

15 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Firebird Database Engine –PRO-TECH v78 update changed from FB v1.5 to FB v2.5 –Primary objective of v2.5 was to take advantage of Symmetric MultiProcessing (SMP) –Firebird v2.5.3 due out Q –Three configurations available –Superserver (default) –Classic –Super Classic

16 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Superserver –Shared cache –Efficient use of server resources –Single process –Scalability issue –Server issue affects all –Example: two users working on hardware

17 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Classic Server –Dedicated cache for each connection –Less efficient use of resources –Requires more system RAM –Separate processes –Scalable

18 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Super Classic (starting w/FB2.5) –Single process, multithreaded –Dedicated cache for each connection –More efficient than Classic –Creating threads cheaper than processes –Scalable

19 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Firebird Database Engine –Conclusions: –http://www.firebirdsql.org/manual/qsg25-appx-architectures.htmlhttp://www.firebirdsql.org/manual/qsg25-appx-architectures.html –None out shines the other two on all fronts. –Classic Server or Super Classic if system performance is impacted with many users or specific task affects other users. –Super Classic is better for 64 bit systems

20 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Database Backup –Backup *.fdb files daily –Three methods –Operating system (o/s) –Firebird nbackup utility –Firebird gbak utility –Operating system –Tape, usb, external hard drive, MozyPro, etc. –Database corruption can occur if user is in PRO-TECH and o/s backup occurs

21 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Database Backup –Firebird nbackup utility –Main database file is locked –.delta file created –All transactions saved in.delta file –Main database file can be copied via o/s –Main database file is unlocked –.delta file transactions applied to main db file –.delta file deleted –Incremental backups available –Can be done while using PRO-TECH

22 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Database Backup –Firebird utility (gbak) –Can be used to defragment a database. –Backup –Saves database structure –Saves flat data –Restore –Builds database structure –Inserts records –Balances indices

23 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Database Backup –Options –Operating system –Schedule stop/start of Firebird service before/after backup software –Stop/start of Firebird service –Ends any open transaction –Frees memory –No one can access PRO-TECH while service is stopped –If needed, restore time is determined by media –Database compression possible before backup

24 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Database Backup –Options –Operating system with Firebird nbackup –Can be used in conjunction with o/s backup –Can be done while database is in use –Does not defrag database

25 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Database Backup –Options –Firebird backup - gbak –Can be used to create database backup file –Can be done while database is in use –If needed, restore may take several hours –Backup file needs to be restored to test validity –Firebird restore -gbak –At least once every two months to defrag Balance of Backup time / File size / Restore Time

26 PRO-TECH Users Group (day 1) Database Backup –Utility –Backup_routine_svc.bat –Interactive or scheduled –Interactive will not delete any file; scheduled will –Options to: –Validate, Mend, Backup, and Restore (1,4) –Backup and Restore only (2,6) –7zip *.fdb files (3,7)

42 42 Quality Assurance New Department at EDSS Automated Testing Tools Fully Scripted with Screen and Report Comparisons Regression Testing for each Application Build Use Case and Scenario based Testing (Requirements) Each New Test Case is Added to the Test Library Customer Databases & Projects for Stress Testing All Tests Executed in Multiple Environments Manual Testing

43 43 Testing Life Cycle Features added, CR fixes, Software changes Unit Test outcome Fail Pas s Regression Test Release Specific Test Defect Test Stress Test Smoke Test outcome Fail Software Developer s QA (Beau) QA Tests Results are Tracked and Archived Development Team QA Team

44 44 Testing Methodology Smoke Test – The Smoke Test is a quick sanity check of the build. It tests the basic features of the build such as creating Hardware Sets, creating Openings and producing the Material Cost Summary. Regression Test – The Regression Test contains a list of features and CRs that are used to test on every build. This test is to make sure that all previous features and previous defect repairs are not broken due to a new feature or repair. Release Specific Test – The Release Specific Test validates the new features added to the release. It also tests internal code changes (e.g. conversions, algorithms). Successful test cases are added to the Regression Test Library. Defect Test – The Defect Test validates the defect repairs added to the release. Successful test cases are added to the Regression Test Library. Stress Test – The Stress Test determines the robustness of the software by testing at and beyond the limits of normal operation.
