Service pack Version 7.0 – 0110 is available now. For installation information, new features and fixed bugs see the list below. 


  • The text filter for the Input collector (already known in V.65), is now available again for V7.0 [V7-2302]
  • Automatically generated copies of FME files can now be placed in an extra folder for each file or in a common folder. The common folder can be configured in the workstation settings “Files and directories“. [V7-4996]
  • The workstation settings “Auto-save configuration” and “Confirm mouse operations” are now saved and retrieved globally. [V7-5265]
  • When importing translations, a more detailed error description is provided if an Excel file cannot be imported. [V7-5360]
  • You can now choose to not import the contents of the Template file when opening an EXP file. [V7-5511]
  • You can now change the “structure type” directly in the context menu of the Project Management dialog. This functionality is also available in the toolbar of the Structure Editor and the FFA via the drop down menu next to the contents Combobox. [V7-5516]
  • A new workstation setting (found in “General“), enables the user to choose whether the type catalogs are always collapsed upon opening the Administration or the Input collector. If expanded directly in e.g. Administration, all levels are collapsed (default). With the following setting active, only the first level will be displayed: “Open catalogs always collapsed (Administration/Input collector)“. [V7-5593]
  • When importing a catalog for product characteristics, the characteristics which have the same name but have different parent objects are no longer skipped as duplicates. [V7-5595]
  • In the Valuation catalogs editor, column labels can now be renamed. [V7-5604]
  • Under Administration -> Terminology and translation you can now limit the contents of the editor to sub structures or Fmea forms under View->Limit contents (formerly known as “limit to projects/structures”).
    Sub structures are selected system elements and all their dependent objects. [V7-5644]
  • Variants: A summary is now displayed via the “Details” button within the Info tab (Properties dialog and Object Inspector), analogous to that of the summary of structures. [V7-5665]
  • The Document setting “Automatic classification calculation: Do not overwrite existing classifications.” has been formulated more understandably: “Allow user overwrite over calculated classifications“. Nothing has changed in terms of functionality. [V7-5794]
  • Clicking on the “All” button in the “Manage Variants” dialog now only selects the variants in which the independent object is included (reverted to previous behavior). If you really want to select everything, click the “All” button a second time. [V7-5810]
  • In the dialog “Select Command…” the contents of the Comboboxes from the toolbar (e.g. filter) are displayed. [V7-5887]
  • Management report: key figures can now be inserted directly as a bar chart. To do this, simply select the desired table cells. The chart can be inserted by right-clicking. The first column of the selection is used as description. The selected columns next to the first are used as values for the height of the bars. [V7-5940]
  • Filter/Highlighting: analogous to the action categories, it is now also possible to search and filter for the function categories. [V7-5971]
  • Management-Report: if the option “Show grid lines” is active they will also be printed and exported to HTML. [V7-5983]
  • XML Interface: The values for monitoringCheck (Check) and monitoringReaction (Reaction) are stored in the SDG container of the fm-task-set element and for the variants in the fm-variant-misc-data element. They will also be re-imported if present. The export is executed in the MSR format as well as in the draft version. [V7-5988]


  • In the Causes based FMEA Form the AP column can be shown via a display option. [V7-5312]
  • Structure Editor: If the focus feature (Ctrl + K) is not active, the previously focused-on elements can be refocused by using the command “Remove focus” (same behaviour when using the filter). [V7-5335]
  • Control Plan: With active document setting “Display of process characteristics is based on characteristic/function net” and active display option “Show requirements” the process characteristics connected to requirements are now shown as well.In the “Working instructions and process control” editor it is now possible to “Show requirements“, too.
    For versions, the process characteristics connected to requirements can only be displayed for control-plan versions created with Service Pack V7-0110 or later. [V7-5408]
  • Opening and editing of nets in variants has been optimised. [V7-5908]

CSS Module:

  • Under CSS Module Access Rights, a possibility has been created to store the owner of a certificate in the form of the Windows user name. If such a certificate is installed, a check will be made upon connection attempts to the CARM-Server whether the entry in the certificate matches the Windows user logged in. This functionality requires CARM-Server V5.7 – 0060 or newer. [V7-5680]
  • The reference language for CSS modules and CSS catalogs can be set server-globally. It serves as an alternative language on the IQ-side, if a module or catalog object has no translation in the set document language. [V7-6003]

Printing/Web Publisher:

  • With the new placeholder “%A“, the current program version along with service pack number can be added to headers and footers. [V7-5705]
  • The Functional Safety – failure table is obsolete with version 7.0 of the IQ-Software. Therefore this document is no longer available in the Presentation-Print and Web-Publisher jobs. [V7-5903]


  • When importing FMEA forms from an Excel file, the option “Merge functions/characteristics/requirements/failure modes” can be used to control whether these objects should be merged during import. [V7-636]
  • For the Excel import of FMEA forms there is a new option “Merge identical causes“.Causes can be merged if
    – they are anchored to the same function
    – they have the same number
    – they have the same name
    – all dependent objects (actions etc.) are the same [V7-1749]
  • The Excel export of tables was reworked to better match the IQ layout in Excel. Only visible columns are now exported to Excel and sporadic bugs in the layout have been fixed.
    The “AIAG/VDA Form (MSR)” can now be exported to Excel. [V7-5477]

FMEA Forms Editor:

  • Square and round brackets are now also displayed for AP, (same behaviour as RPN):
    – square brackets for the historical revision states
    – no brackets for the current revision state and
    – round brackets for the preview (proposed measures). [V7-5339]
  • The table header name “VDA 2019 (AIAG/VDA)” has been changed to “AIAG/VDA 2019“. The layout names remain unchanged. [V7-5344]
  • In the following layouts, it is now possible to display (via Display options), the S-max of the failure mode:  VDA 96/VDA 06, VDA 2019 (AIAG/VDA), AIAG (4th edition, D – Design), AIAG (4th edition, E – Process) [V7-5948]

AIAG/VDA Forms Editor:

  • The dialog “Select Command…” now also lists the last commands used (list size can be changed via context menu). Furthermore, it is now possible to define favourites (also via context menu). The favorites are saved when the software is closed and can be used across editors. [V7-4982]
  • The background colour of objects can now be changed via the toolbar and context menu for hot-click icons (object type). [V7-5835]
