Course Details

With the release of Tempo® - the first time based, multi-period run version of the Metric series of models - significant new functionality was added. In addition to unlimited indenture levels, unlimited echelons and the ability to enter distinct values for each part at every site - all the features VMetric is known for - users of Tempo can account for a number of time based phenomenon. Change part data, fleet build up and run down, obsolescence, complex PBL contracts, and changing targets are just some of the things Tempo can handle. Dynamic Data Analysis enables the user to create and edit custom reports with drag and drop functionality to create instant changes.

This course is aimed at new users of Tempo, but is equally applicable to previous users of VMetric. It covers the general theory of analytical models and the place of Tempo in the TFD Suite; a detailed tour through all aspects of the software, interspersed with practical exercises to ensure that participants are comfortable in the modeling environment; discussion of the use of Tempo in dealing with real-world problems, illustrated with case studies; general comments on how to approach analytical problems; and a description of the operation of the Tempo engine; and an overview of the various time based phenomena that Tempo accounts for. Participants are encouraged to bring with them data and/or descriptions of general or particular problems they face in their work; these will be discussed in open forum and, hopefully, guidance or recommendations on possible approaches given.
