Activity Modeling & ABC

The AIØ WIN® software allows you to create activity models of your enterprise and trace the costs of all modeled activities using the tool's ABC functionality. Starting your ABC analysis with activity modeling lets you focus your ABC efforts on your management decision needs.

Version 10 Now Available

The newest version of AIØ WIN® includes updates to the software's engine, along with expanded platform support and enhanced security measures. Updates to the engine required changing the back-end database formats and file types produced by the tool.

Replacement of the Pervasive Btrieve engine in AIØ WIN® means that models created in older versions of the tool and saved in the *.aio format cannot be opened in version 10. To open your existing models in 10, you can either save the models in your current version of AIØ WIN® as *.txt files and open them in the new version, or Contact KBSI and we'll convert the models for you.

If you're a current customers, your KBSI account manager will be contacting you with information about your update. To learn more, contact our sales department by e-mailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by calling 979-260-5274.

Overview

With the AIØ WIN® software, create activity models of your enterprise and trace the costs of all modeled activities. Beginning your ABC analysis with activity modeling allows you to focus your ABC efforts on your management decision needs.

Version 10 of AIØ WIN® provides a number of options for enhancing your activity and ABC modeling collaboration. The HTML generation features allow you to designate which models and diagrams in the active project to include in the generated HTML file. The XMI generation feature allows you to export AIØ WIN® models or individual diagrams to XMI and view the models and diagrams in UML.

AIØ WIN® allows you to generate XMI files for Unified Modeling Language (UML) support. You can generate XMI files from AIØ WIN® models or from individual diagrams and their decompositions. This capability allows users to view AIØ WIN® models in the popular UML format.

Powerful Enterprise Activity Modeling

Use the powerful enterprise activity modeling in the AIØ WIN® software to structure your business activities and relationships to your baseline management strategies. The AIØ WIN® models allow you to document and graphically visualize all of your business' activities.

The AIØ WIN® models are organized in hierarchical levels and allow you to drill down from an activity and pivot for varying and more detailed perspectives of your model. Double click activities and concepts to add text or attach files (reports, presentations, etc.) that describe the elements.

HTML, XML, and SVG Support

AIØ WIN® also offers a wide range of import and export options that allow you to extend your modeling work to other platforms. HTML generation in AIØ WIN® includes all elements in the active repository, an index of all elements, and hypertext linking among the project elements. The generated HTML file includes separate frames that show a hypertext list of all project elements, a graphic of the selected element or diagram, and documentation text (the location of the element, description, notes, sources, etc.) that describes the selected element or diagram.

The AIØ WIN® XML generation lets you automatically create a Java applet of your activity models that includes a tree pane view of the project showing all models and pool elements from your AIØ WIN® repositories. The XML generation also includes cost information for activities and concepts and a list of element attachments that you can click to launch the corresponding file.

The SVG generation options allow you to generate models and diagrams as scalable vector graphics (SVG). Use the Adobe® SVG Viewer (available for free download at adobe.com) to view your generated diagrams and models. Generated models include hyperlinks for one click navigation between parent activities and their decompositions.

Fast Track Activity Based Costing and Analysis

Create visual models so management decision-makers can more effectively use ABC. Visually trace the cost of activities to their products, and bring focus to resource use and consumption. KBSI's SmartABC provides knowledge-based, two-way translation to Microsoft Excel®, allowing users to calculate ABC costs from AIØ WIN® models.

Do more with the AIØ WIN® ABC modeling features:

  • Automatic calculation and display of account allocations

  • Unlimited support for user-defined cost drivers.

  • Custom filtering of ABC ledgers, resources, or other elements.
