Enhancement Release – 4/4/2015

We had an enhancement release this morning, and we’d like to introduce you to some key updates to our products.

Capstone/Foundation:

  • TQM investments have been capped to prevent students from making decision entry mistakes and initiating large emergency loans. Capstone’s cap has been set to $5,000 per initiative, per round, and Foundation is now capped at $2,500 per initiative, per round.

GlobalDNA

  • Added Footrace to GlobalDNA. Now you can choose to put your industries into footrace functionality upon course launch.
  • Changed part of the Fulfillment after Adjustment calculation. During the year a product is released, its Fulfillment after Adjustment is no longer affected by time in market, only the company’s A/P policy and available capacity.
  • Adjusted the scale and reporting for the Overall Product Design rating in the Debrief Tool.
  • Fixed a bug where new products that took two or more years to reach the market would take extra time on a second update scheduled during the year of release.
  • Created a Shareholder’s Final Debrief Presentation template for student presentations to the Help & Support section.
  • Corrected an issue with the Annual Report’s Cash Flow Statement reporting incorrect data for the previous year.
