New versions are available from the ikv download server for registered users. You will get your account data when registering for the maintenance service.
The preferred way of contacting support is online via the issue tracking system at the maintenance website. You will get an account when registering for the maintenance service. You can also contact the support via e-mail and telephone callback. Both will be made available after registering for the maintenance service.
Yes, ikv will provide individual “Gold Support” with faster response time on individual queries at a higher support level. The fee depends on the number of regular licenses and registered users.
Registered users will be automatically informed about new versions of the software as well as of important bug fixes or new maintenance releases. Maintenance services will be delivered via email, bug tracking service and as call-back-service.
ikv offers a possibility to change the type of a license to a license of higher value (e.g. from single user to dongle or from dongle to floating) if there is a valid maintenance agreement between the licensee and ikv. The original paid license fee is discounted from the new applicable license fee. A small change fee is charged for this service.
Rental licenses and subscriptions will be available on request. Special maintenance and upgrade rules will apply here.
Company licenses will be offered on request.
Yes, floating network licenses are offered.
Yes, dongle licenses are offered.
medini analyze supports a node locked license. A node locked license can be installed on the licensed node only but be used by all users of the licensed node.
Regular releases of medini analyze will be published in a 6-month rythm. In between we provide service packs in case of necessary updates.
The roadmap for medini analyze is available to customers of the tool at the maintenance website. Access information to the maintenance website will be provided to the customer together with the medini analyze license key.
Projects can be imported and exported using the import/export wizards accessible via File menu -> Import... and File menu -> Export... respectively. For importing a project, open the import wizard and select "Existing Projects into Workspace" on the first page (under General folder). If you have a .zip like the example project, choose Select archive File on the next page and browse to the zip file. After pressing finished, the project should appear in the model browser. For more information see also the help (section 9.2.1).
This issue might happen in older Word 2003 versions (standard edition, e.g. version 11.8237.8221). The generated Word document is stored in an XML dialect called WordML. The generated .doc file is OK, so the dialog can be safely confirmed.
No. medini analyze starts an own instance of MATLAB/Simulink for the visualization of imported models.
When opening a Simulink model the first time, medini analyze starts the MATLAB/Simulink COM server in order to visualize the model. This takes a constant amount time.
Typically, the requirements management is done in requirements management tools which most users of medini analyze will have already in operation. Therefore, medini analyze supports an export of safety requirements in the RIF format. Moreover, for a simple requirements management also an export of the requirements in Excel-format is supported.
ASIL decomposition is supported according to ISO 26262.
DOORS is integrated via the Requirements Interchange Format (RIF).
You may integrate existing artefacts as external documents or by external references. If you need the existing results on a fine grained level (i.e. as a model) you need specific importers - please contact ikv with the details of your specific tool.
medini analyze implements the interchange of requirements based on the RIF/ReqIF standard. Accordingly, medini analyze can import requirements from and export safety requirements to requirements management systems that support RIF/ReqIF.
  Integration with 3rd party tools is possible due to the open and modular architecture of medini analyze. There are two ways to integrate with an external FTA tool:
  • Register the work results of the external FTA tool as an external document in medini analyze. This allows to use them as source or target of trace relations
  • Import a complete FTA into the medini analyze FTA model. This allows a much more fine grained tracing.
 
  Integration with 3rd party tools is possible due to the open and modular architecture of medini analyze. There are two ways to collaborate with an external FMEA tool:
  • Register the work results of the external FMEA tool as an external document in medini analyze. This allows to use them as source or target of trace relations
  • Import a complete FMEA into the medini analyze FMEA model. This allows a much more fine grained tracing and also usage of the results of the external FMEA for further analysis methods like FTA.
 
medini analyze does allow to import hazard lists, requirements and checklists from .csv files. This enbales also an Excel import. The import wizard allows to map Excel columns to attributes of medini analyze.
  ikv will provide you the following information for the tool qualification at the customer side:
  • description of the features
  • installation procedure
  • user manual
  • environmental constraints for the proper operation of the tool
  • list of known bugs and available workarounds
  • possibility of assessment of the development process which ikv applied to develop medini analyze
 
Yes, ikv provides this as a consulting service. The reference process is based on the activities required by the ISO 26262 lifecycle.
It is possible to adapt the document generation to customer specific templates, provided the necessary information required by the template are part of the models kept in medini analyze. As the document generation is based the flexible BIRT engine more information can be found at http://www.eclipse.org/birt/phoenix/
medini analyze does not prescribe a specific functional safety process. Instead, it provides a set of methods that support the activities required by the ISO 26262 functional safety lifecycle. These methods can be integrated into different development processes. If it is required by a customer, ikv’s experts can work together with the customer to establish a functional safety process that is supported by medini analyze.
This service is available. ikv usually supports the customer during pilot projects to find out in which way medini analyze can best be embedded into the customers process. If the customer has no yet a specified process to support functional safety, ikv’s experts can make suggestions on how to extend the current development process and how to integrate functional safety analysis into it in order to establish an organization wide safety culture.
