SCIO™-Net-BuilderCreate networks and analyze relationships in networks.

If a problem arises, the task of risk analysis is to assess the risk and find measures to prevent damage. It is essential to recognise the causes of the problem and to find out which effects and consequential problems may arise in other places.

Safe control of complex systems. 

SCIO™-Net-Builder was specially developed for problem and error analysis.

SCIO™-Net-Builder focuses on the problem and shows the environment, e.g. possible causes from all subsystems or possible consequences in the higher-level systems, the product user, etc. Even with complex systems, the user can easily navigate through the visual representation and establish the connection chains between causes and effects.

SCIO™-Net-Builder always displays the current error network as well as the corresponding function network. Of course, the FMEA forms are automatically filled on the basis of the resulting error network.

Why SCIO™-Net-Builder? Your advantages.

Fast & Clearly Structured
  • The basis for an error analysis is the system and function analysis of SCIO™-Matrix.
  • If no system analysis is available, the SCIO™-Net-Builder can still be used immediately, since all functionalities for creating new structures and functions are integrated.
  • The corresponding current function and error networks are always graphically displayed for the selected function or error in question.
  • New errors are created quickly and clearly or existing errors are suggested and linked via the cause-effect relationships.
Automatic & Cross-Level
  • The error network automatically fills the corresponding FMEA forms in all system levels.
  • The FMEA form columns "Error", "Consequence/Damage" and "Cause" are filled.
  • Origin information indicates which error of a subsystem leads to the cause and which error in a higher-level system leads to a sequence in the FMEA.
Analytic & Visual
  • The strength of SCIO™-Net-Builder is the visual representation of correlations.

  • The entire database can be evaluated via an analysis mask.

  • All evaluations are displayed graphically.

  • Complaint management: Error networks show causes and effects of complaints.

  • Function networks provide an overview of functional correlations in the product or process.

  • Function networks also show process and product characteristics (specifications).

  • The influence of a process step on the overall process and the product is shown.

Intuitive & Informative
  • Finding elements, components, sub-processes, etc. is possible intuitively and quickly with SCIO™-Net-Builder over the entire database.
  • Individual parts, which are installed in several products, can be found in all applications.
  • An overview shows all affected structural meshes with the entire path up to the top element as well as all subsystems.
