The newest version of AIØ
WIN® includes updates to the software's engine, along with expanded platform support and enhanced security measures. Updates to the engine required changing the back-end database formats and file types produced by the tool.
Replacement of the Pervasive Btrieve engine in AIØ
WIN® means that models created in older versions of the tool and saved in the *.aio format cannot be opened in version 10. To open your existing models in 10, you can either save the models in your current version of AIØ
WIN® as *.txt files and open them in the new version, or contact KBSI and we'll convert the models for you.
If you're a current customers, your KBSI account manager will be contacting you with information about your update. To learn more, contact our sales department by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 979-260-5274.
The AIØWIN® Viewer software is a free download and allows users to open, view and print AIØWIN® models. The models cannot be edited, making the software ideal for sharing models as part of collaborative project reviews or project presentations.
The AIØWIN® Viewer software can only open AIØWIN® v10 models, but older models can be converted for use. For more information on converting older models, contact a KBSI sales representative.
With the AIØ
WIN® software, create activity models
of your enterprise and trace the costs of all modeled activities.
Beginning your ABC analysis with activity modeling allows you
to focus your ABC efforts on your management decision needs.
Version 10 of AIØ
WIN® provides a number of options for enhancing your activity and ABC modeling collaboration. The HTML generation features allow you to designate which models and diagrams in the active project to include in the generated HTML file. The XMI generation feature allows you to export AIØ
WIN® models or individual diagrams to XMI and view the models and diagrams in UML.
AIØ WIN® allows you to generate XMI files for Unified Modeling Language (UML) support. You
can generate XMI files from AIØ WIN® models or from individual diagrams and their
This capability allows users to view AIØ WIN® models in the popular UML format.
Powerful Enterprise Activity Modeling
Use the powerful enterprise activity modeling in
the AIØ WIN® software to structure your business activities and relationships
to your baseline management strategies. The AIØ WIN® models
allow you to document and graphically visualize all of your business'
WIN® models are organized in hierarchical levels and allow you
to drill down from an activity and pivot for varying and more detailed
perspectives of your model. Double click activities and concepts
to add text or attach files (reports, presentations, etc.) that describe the elements.
HTML, XML, and SVG Support
WIN® also offers a wide range of import and export options that allow you to extend your modeling work to other platforms. HTML generation in AIØ
WIN® includes all elements in the active repository, an index of all
elements, and hypertext linking among the project elements. The generated HTML file includes separate frames that show a hypertext list of all project elements, a graphic of the selected element or diagram, and documentation text (the location of the element,
description, notes, sources, etc.) that describes the selected element or diagram.
WIN® XML generation lets
you automatically create a Java applet of your activity models that includes a tree pane view
of the project showing all models
and pool elements from your AIØ WIN® repositories. The
XML generation also includes cost information for activities
and concepts and a list of element attachments that you can click
to launch the corresponding file.
The SVG generation options allow you to generate
models and diagrams as scalable vector graphics (SVG). Use the Adobe® SVG Viewer (available for free download at adobe.com) to view your
generated diagrams and models. Generated models include hyperlinks
for one click navigation between parent activities and their decompositions.
Fast Track Activity Based Costing and Analysis
Create visual models so management decision-makers
can more effectively use ABC. Visually trace the cost of activities
to their products, and bring focus to resource use and consumption.
KBSI's SmartABC provides knowledge-based, two-way translation to Microsoft Excel®, allowing users to calculate ABC costs from AIØ WIN® models.
