Announcing the ArcFM Solution 10.2.1b Release

Schneider Electric is excited to introduce the 10.2.1b release of the ArcFM Solution. We've added powerful functionality and intelligent enhancements to many ArcFM Solution applications. ArcFM Solution 10.2.1b has been certified against ArcGIS 10.2.1. The ArcFM 10.2.1b release introduces the following:

 

ArcFM

ArcFM received a variety of enhancements:

  • Feeder Manager (FM) 2.0 better supports customizations that rely on feeder information changing.
  • Feeder Manager 2.0 supports ArcFM Field Order so users have easy access to the most critical information needed to do their job.
  • The Feeder Sync Tool is faster at updating feeder information in the geodatabase.
  • There is now an Exit button on the ArcFM Login screen so you can easily back out of unintended ArcMap opens.
  • The ArcFM Attribute Editor, ArcFM Locator, and ArcFM Identify tools have more robust support for enterprise data models, both inside and outside of the geodatabase.

 

Designer

The enhancements to Designer focus primarily on usability:

  • When a user runs the Auto Assign Work Location tool (commonly known as the Car Tool), the tool assigns CUs to work locations according to their work function.
  • Take advantage of stability improvements in Designer and Designer Express for a better user experience with graphics, editing, commissioning, and more.

 

Responder

We added a number of enhancements to Responder 10.2.1b:

  • Full jumper functionality is fully integrated with planned switching and restoration orders! Planning, adding, and removing jumpers is done visually through the Switching Orders Editor and its tight integration with ArcMap.
  • Responder consumes Weather Web Services to add weather tracking to your Responder maps. Click the wws.png icon on your Responder toolbar in ArcMap to begin your free trial.
  • When you place jumpers, Responder makes sure you are not mistakenly energizing a ground.
  • The Edit Incident tool in ArcMap will no longer require disabling the region filter to access the Edit Incident box for incidents outside of a Dispatcher's assigned regions.
  • Responder Web will visually indicate expired restoration estimates on the Customer Service tab.
  • Responder Explorer has a Reprocess Devices option available through an incident's right-click menu that will re-calculate loadpoints. The process will create needed loadpoints and delete ones that no longer exist to resolve database errors or changes.
  • The Calls tab shows what phases are affecting customers.
  • The Execute All button on the Switching Orders Editor is configurable, allowing you to remove it on individual client machines.
  • You can run a switching order report through the Switching Orders Editor main menu.
  • We enhanced the Notify Network Change tool to also call Esri Version Change.
  • You have the option to remove the arrival time for a hazard, which also removes the need to enter a departure time.
  • The Restoration Steps command is available on incidents without devices, such as those with only non-electric features or hazards.
  • We added a new Developer Sample to exchange that illustrates how to add custom queries to define reports.
  • We've made enhancements to the PubSub infrastructure which will allow for faster updates and increased application responsiveness.

 

ArcFM Mobile

  • Field crews can work regardless of network connectivity, increasing productivity across the service territory and reducing reliance on expensive data plans.
  • The new ArcFM Mobile Viewer option gives crews essential map navigation and search tools at a lower subscription rate.
  • Redlining enables crews to create sketches associated with their work to share GIS corrections and other situational information.
  • Coordinators can quickly configure "follow-up work" for better collaboration between field resources and between field and office.

 

ArcFM Server

  • Related records are now controllable via ArcFM configuration, like any other feature.

 

Fiber Manager

  • We've added numerous bug fixes.

 

Wavepoint 1.0.3

  • The Map toolbar has been updated to provide functionality for features new to 1.0.3.
  • The new Measurement Tool provides two ways - Distance and Location - of measuring between points on the map.
  • The Legend tool provides a legend, in Wavepoint's left pane, that displays all of the features currently viewable in the map.
  • The Identify pop-up has been revamped to provide attribute information in a Selection tab in the left pane, rather than in the map on top of other features.
  • Wavepoint leverages Esri's Javascript API version 3.11.

 

ArcFM Solution 10.2.1b is certified on Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Oracle 12c. Refer to the Supported Versions list in the GIS Support space in exchange for details. A full list of new functionality is available on the What's New in 10.2.1b? page in the exchange community. This release also resolves issues discovered by customers in previous versions.

Announcing the ArcFM™ Solution 10.2.1a Release

Schneider Electric is excited to introduce the 10.2.1a release of the ArcFM Solution. We've added powerful functionality and intelligent enhancements to many ArcFM Solution applications.

ArcFM Solution 10.2.1a has been certified against ArcGIS 10.2.1. The ArcFM 10.2.1a release introduces the following:


ArcFM

ArcFM received a variety of enhancements:

  • With 10.2.1a, we've introduced the Feeder Sync tool. This allows you to take advantage of Feeder Manager 2.0, while still maintaining Feeder Manager 1.0 fields (i.e., FeederID, FeederID2, and Feeder Info) in the geodatabase.
  • With 10.2.1a, we've further improved the performance of Feeder Manager 2.0 by reducing the amount of memory used by as much as 50 percent.
  • A new toggle button within the Find Feeder tool allows you to enable flow arrows that indicate the flow direction in a congested area of the network.
  • ArcFM Traces now render significantly faster. The Results tab in the Trace Options window has been replaced with an ArcFM Trace Results tab and the selected options now persist across ArcMap sessions. These enhancements apply to electric, gas, and water traces.
  • Two new developer samples allow you to extend Feeder Manager 2.0. Check out the Feeder Inventory and Synchronize Feeder Information samples in exchange.


Designer

The enhancements to Designer focus primarily on further performance improvements:

  • The time it takes to open a design has been further reduced.
  • The Designer CU to Work Location Assignment tool has also received another significant performance boost.
  • The CU Filter now has an All category that displays all filtered results regardless of the type.


Responder

We added a number of enhancements to Responder 10.2.1a:

  • Jumpers now support Phase Swap. A user can place a jumper between different phases if at least one of those phases is de-energized.
  • Responder Line Display respects jumper placement and removal.
  • A customer service representative can mark incoming calls as Urgent when logging calls via the Responder web browser. This designation signals the dispatcher that the call must be handled immediately.
  • Responder Reporting has received several enhancements. In addition to a more user-friendly design, we've added two new reports in Responder Explorer. Archive Reports are also available in the Responder web browser.


ArcFM Server

A new REST endpoint in ArcFM Server provides the ability to execute a Water Pressure System Trace.


Fiber Manager

Fiber Manager users should not upgrade to 10.2.1a just yet. With 10.2.1a, we've split Fiber Manager into a separate installer, and we're still putting the finishing touches on exciting new functionality. The 10.2.1a version of Fiber Manager will be available soon.


ArcFM Viewer for ArcGIS Engine

If you do not wish to use Fiber Manager functionality in ArcFM Viewer, the 10.2.1a installers will provide all the functionality you need. We will release an ArcFM Viewer patch for the Fiber Manager tools at a later date. Do not use the Fiber Manager functionality in ArcFM Viewer until this patch is available.

 

ArcFM Solution 10.2.1a is certified on Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012. Refer to the Supported Versions list in the GIS Support space in exchange for details. A full list of new functionality is available on the What's New in 10.2.1a page in the exchange community. This release also resolves issues discovered by customers in previous versions. For complete descriptions of resolved problems, view the Read Me file that corresponds with each product.

 

The installation files for version 10.2.1a behave as complete installations. To install 10.2.1a, you must first uninstall any existing ArcFM Solution products. The 10.2.1a version is not an upgrade that can be installed on top of 10.2.1. Refer to the Read Me file for more information.

 

All installers are available on exchange in the GIS Downloads group. If you haven't joined the exchange community, simply click Register to get started. You will need to request to join to the GIS Downloads group to access the 10.2.1a installers.

Continuing with our response to customer requests, the numerous performance boosts ArcFM received are now available at 10.1. You'll see substantial improvements in application startup time, opening stored displays, Feeder Manager initialization, and core ArcFM tools such as the Attribute Editor.

 

Designer users will notice considerably better speeds when opening and saving designs, placing template favorites, and using the Designer CU to Work Location Assignment tool.
