  • AIM Modeller9 Dec 2017 also with AIM Server for data simulation
    • AIM Modeller
      • Force AIM save files to have a .json file extension
      • When simulation business scenarios through a model, color model elements as green or red depending on if the function successfully executes the associated JScript or not. This makes it easier to see your progress in simulating Enterprise business information flows.

.Zip versions of AIM Modeller and AIM Server are available which can be unzipped and run without doing an install – AIM Modeller (zip) and AIM Server (zip).

Change history

  • 9 Nov 2017
    • AIM Modeller
      • Extensions to the information exported into an OpenExchange file from AIM. The OpenExchange export now contains 1 view for each Business Scenario defined in AIM, complete with mapping to functions and business objects. This is in addition to the existing ‘Default View’ in the OpenExchange export which mirrors how your model looks in AIM.
      • Changed menus back to using plain Arial font due to errors on some machines installing/displaying the custom font.
      • Fixed regression error that resulted in AIM not starting up properly. This was where no “AIM Server URL” was specified under File > Options. This affected any new AIM installation.
      • Experimental file based transport layer comms to AIM Server.
      • Improvements to display of simulated Enterprise data overlaid on model in world space.
      • New option in File > Options to select between file based comms or http based comms (default) for messaging between AIM Modeller and AIM Server. The ‘file’ based comms option does not require administrator privileges, whereas ‘http’ based comms requires AIM Server to run as admin.
      • Getting a new trial license, and general comms between AIM to manage licenses now occurs over port 443, rather than 8443, which plays more nicely with corporate firewalls.
    • AIM Server
      • Improvements to content and format of Concept of Operations doc.
        • Now includes business scenarios in the exported Word document
        • Word document formatting is now based on an included AIM-template.dotx Word template provided in the AIM Server installation folder. You can modify AIM-template.dotx to control how your Concept of Operations doc is formatted.
        • Server state now persists across method calls, meaning that scripts can cache server-side data in JScript between method calls.
  • 23 Aug 2017
    • AIM Modeller
      • Display JSON data in world space as a business scenario executes, above the function that created the data.
      • Updated Concept of Operations doc. Additionally includes list of projects and work packages in the generated Word document, along with all model details.
    • AIM Server
      • Now uses Microsoft JScript Compiler completely, for parsing JSON data, which fixed a problem that occurred with some types of JSON data.
  • 15 Aug 2017
    • AIM Modeller
      • Performance improvement – smoother animation of flows / improved multi-threading, should result in better performance, esp. on lower end machines.
      • Fix regression error, where clicking Play on an auto-story icon (on Info panel or any other panel with an auto-story button) would not correctly hide all UI panels from view while the story was playing.
      • Inclusion of summary of business scenarios in Concept of Operations doc.
    • AIM Server.
      • Improved errors messages in AIM Server if the selected port is already in use, or AIM Server not configured to run as admin.
  • 12 Aug 2017
    • New  – Macro data simulation. Model real data flowing through your AIM design. (BETA). Requires download and install of AIM Server. AIM Server is only required if you are simulating business scenarios, and must run as admin as it listens as a mini web-server, communicating with AIM Modeller. See here for details on how to do the one-off setting change for AIM Server to run as admin.
    • New – Export the entire model to a Concept of Operations document in Word — containing all of your functions, components, information, and cross-references. (BETA)
    • Speed/stability improvements
    • New File > Options setting to pause AIM if you switch to another application.
