Databases and Projects

The ReliaSoft desktop applications use a multi-user, database-driven approach. This offers enormous potential to integrate reliability program activities and tools, while simultaneously facilitating effective information sharing and cooperation between engineering teams of any size.

Your organization (or team) will need to choose the most appropriate database type and security, implement shared settings that will effectively facilitate project management, and establish adequate backups and database maintenance to protect against data loss. In addition, individual users must be aware that changes are saved automatically as they work, and become familiar with the features that facilitate simultaneous access by multiple users.

This chapter discusses some of the basic requirements for using ReliaSoft applications and projects. For information about other features, see ReliaSoft Common Tools.

What's Changed? In versions prior to Version 2020, "databases" were known as "repositories."
