The Right Equipment

In order to use the APIS IQ-Software, certain hardware and software components are necessary.

It is important to distinguish between the product lines APIS IQ-Software and CARM-Server software.

The product line APIS IQ-Software (also called clients) consists of IQ-FMEA, IQ-RM and their expanded versions: IQ-FMEA, IQ-FMEA-L, IQ-FMEA PRO, IQ-RM and IQ-RM PRO. IQ-CT is the product of choice for clear defined tasks as it offers a smaller range of functions and therefore requires less training effort.

The server software “CARM-Server” complements the IQ-Software with automated services including PDF-Publisher and action tracking.

Further information is available on the products and the product comparison pages.

APIS IQ-Software

Generally, the following system requirements apply for all expansion stages of the product line APIS IQ-Software:

Local Client

  • PC with a IA32 (x86) compatible processor
  • Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x (desktop mode), Windows 10
  • Hard disk with 300 MB free space
  • CD ROM drive
  • At least 1024 MB of free memory (RAM) and a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 pixels

4 GB RAM, CPU 2 GHz and above, and a screen resolution of at least 1600 x1024 pixels are recommended.

Depending on the chosen licensing model, you have to take the following into account:

Version With Dongle

Additional to above mentioned requirements a card reader or a free USB port is necessary. The card reader is delivered by request.

Network Version

The network version consists of two components:

  • The network component is typically stored on an existing file server or on a network drive (300 MB free disk space is required).
  • For the client component the same requirements apply as mentioned above (local client).

A permanent network connection of 10 Mbit/s is necessary for the data exchange to work properly.
A standalone server for floating licensing is not necessary to manage licenses.
Additional information about the network installation is available in the installation manual in the download section.

Server Software

CARM-Server

For the CARM-Server software, the same requirements apply as for the client version. The operating system functions under either a Windows client or Windows Server version. A permanent network connection is necessary in order to communicate properly with the clients.

CARM-NG-Server

The CARM-NG-Server is a platform independent application software, implemented in Java, which needs a Java EE server and a database, such as MySQL or MSSQL, for operation.

The hardware requirements depend completely on the used components. APIS delivers the CARM-NG-Server with the application server GlassFish and the database MySQL. For this configuration we recommend server hardware with at least 1 gigabyte of memory and 4 gigabyte of hard disk space.
