Software for International Management Systems focuses on Risk Assessments

We are pleased to announce the release of a new version of QMSCAPA v1.17.4, our International and Quality Management System software. This version is available for download from ABCI-Software by joining our software-user-group.

In this version special attention has been focused on enhancing our Risk Assessment module, which now includes new boundary controls that are user definable. Our default boundaries are Very Low, Low, Medium, High and Very High.

These boundaries can be triggered by user-defined values for evaluating Probability (P), Severity (S) and the Detection (D) of risk. A Risk Priority Number (RPN) is calculated at the Risk Aspect level and the Risk Assessment level. At the Aspect level the RPN equals P * S * D. The RPN at the Risk Assessment level equals the sum of all Aspect RPNs within a single Risk Assessment. Essentially, QMSCAPA can create and store thousands of Risk Assessments and related Aspects.

End-User License:
The single user release of QMSCAPA (version 1 all releases) is license free, which means QMSCAPA is free to use and free to share. Multiple-user and site licenses for QMSCAPA are available from ABCI-Software.

Reminder Note:
The upgrade installation program (QMSCAPA-1U.exe) will not install any data, however default report templates are updated. Therefore, you can use this installation wizard to upgrade an existing QMSCAPA installation.

The demo installation program (QMSCAPA-1D.exe) will install demonstration data and report templates. Therefore, do not use this installation wizard to upgrade an existing QMSCAPA. However, the demonstration data is essential for new installations.

Of course, if you have any suggestions to help us improve QMSCAPA we would really appreciate getting your feed-back.

Computer Requirements:

Single user QMSCAPA requires Windows XP (SP3) or higher, including Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. We recommend a Windows Server with Remote Desktop Connections for a multi-user installation of QMSCAPA.
