VisiTrac/Basictm Cycle Reporting and Modeling Product


Version 9.6


The current release of VisiTrac/Basic is 9.6

What's New in Version 9.6?

VisiTrac version 9.6 provides a simplified flowchart definition process to speed production of your flowcharts and related reports. With version 9.6 you can now enter a list of tasks that are part of the application or the name of the application defind in your forecast or work plan -- VisiTrac does the rest. VisiTrac will use this information to identify the flowchart these tasks or application are members of and generate the surrounding task network.

The definition of a process using only tasks eliminates the need to specify Start and End jobs as was required in earlier versions of VisiTrac. The flowchart produced will reveal the overall structure of the process' flowchart. We still recommend coding Start/End jobs to improve reporting acuracy. This improvement produces a flowchart from which the user can easily locate Start/End jobs to be used for improved accuracy and/or locating different flows to be reported.

What is VisiTrac?

VisiTrac provides the user with quick and easy desktop access to an in-depth understanding of the structure and performance of any batch cycle. All the user needs to do is identify one or more cycle by start, end or embedded tasks and VisiTrac produces a comprehensive collection of reports, charts and a full-cycle task flowchart. It's that easy.

VisiTrac makes it simple to summarize, manage and track your cycles. By loading historical task execution data into the product's database you can get an instant, historical view of how any cycle is and has been executing.

When a cycle runs late, the VisiTrac reports make it easy to determine why the cycle ended late. It could be a late start, a mid-cycle delay, one or more abends, extra processing loads or any combination of reasons. A quick review of the reports will make it self-evident why the cycle has ended so late so you can take action to prevent a failure the next time.

Finally, VisiTrac provides a graphical modeling environment where changes to the cycle can be applied and the what if effect to the overall system of work can be immediately seen.

VisiTractm Reports

VisiTrac assembles all the reports and flowcharts into one file for immediate access through the Windowstm desktop component. From the Windowstm interface the output can be directly viewed and printed. VisiTrac supports interactive desktop modeling to check the effect of application and tuning changes prior to production implementation.

VisiTrac has something for everyone in your organization. The following is a high-level listing of the reports always available.

How does VisiTractm Work?

VisiTrac collects your task execution history and process scheduler data, storing the data in its database. Reports are produced through a VisiTrac report process that integrates the stored data and your user parameters to identify and report on each process defined. Both task history and schedule data is collected using standard interfaces so the installation is seemless, requiring no system modifications or gens.

Report output is shipped to your Windows desktop where it can be viewed through our VisiTrac desktop viewer. The desktop component provides report access and criteria adjustments for customized viewing. The component also includes an advanced modeling facility to conduct "what if" scenario testing of changes before you implement.
