ModelCHECK supports a Web-Enabled key performance indicator tool using data obtained from all users checking. See help article: "About the Web-Enabled ModelCHECK Metrics Tool"
This product idea proposes an automated fully configurable installation tool that includes and sets up all the required software to allow the ModelCHECK metrics tool to be fully deployed.
ModelCHECK Metrics claims many great benefits, see the help to learn that you can offer the following benefits to your organization:
"The following are some of the information that the tool displays as graphs:
• The errors and warnings recorded against users or groups
• The distribution of the errors and warnings
• The number of ModelCHECK initializations
• A report of the failed checks
• The experience levels of ModelCHECK users
• The total investment on training
In addition, you can use this tool to perform the following functions:
• Access the ModelCHECK and the training databases
• Define a groups of users based on factors such as active projects and functional areas
• Create check sets and map them against the users or groups
• Check and monitor the experience levels of users
• Monitor the quality of models for specific ModelCHECK failures
• Evaluate the progress of the users or groups and the company against the company goals
• View the overall company status and the status of the models, at a glance
• Define the company's quality goals based on the checks, errors, and warnings "
BUT you can't do ANY of this utill you:
- Install a Java Software Development Kit.
- Install Tomcat for Java Web Services Developer Pack.
- Teach yourself the required settings for these tools and make specific settings to allow Model CHECK Metrics tool to run.
- Install a Web Server.
- Oh and, you need to know how to set up an SQL compatible database to hold all the data.
Granted there is high level help included for this. But it's a case where the help says "Install xyz tool" and to do that you'll end up reading for 2 days, and making a 5 page configuration guide for your records. Then you can move to step 2 in the help process... basically I would estimate a month of time to set this up assuming no fully experienced IT team to set these required supporting technologies in place.
So basically you need a very capable IT team to set this up including at least a Web Developer, SQL DBA on top of running Creo and supporting users.
