Automatically generating reports is one of the sometimes-unknown capabilities of the verification software.

Microsoft Word will alphabetize a list automatically. I didn’t know that. A couple of times, I put a list in alphabetical order by copying and pasting one line of text at a time.

Ken Skovran says that’s the way it is with software. He is a sales representative for CGTech, makers of Vericut simulation and verification software. I spoke with him at a recent “Vericut Users Exchange” (see schedule). He says that software users often do not know all the features that can save them effort and time. This is particularly true of long-time users, who often don’t find the time to discover all of the relevant new capabilities that have been added to later releases of the software.

He recommends what he calls a software “audit.” Have the software’s support personnel watch how you use (and don’t use) their product. CGTech personnel do this for customers frequently. That is, they visit a shop and watch the product not with an eye to selling more capabilities, but instead with the aim of discovering opportunities for the capabilities a shop has already bought.

To learn what sorts of unused capabilities are recommended after some of these audits, read here.
