TMS has reached the release No. 01.001.03.07: let us introduce you to the big improvements of this latest release.
Following the feedback received from TMS users, we have focused in particular on the Deliverables management. The import/export of Deliverables data has been maximized with new powerful features and innovative approaches to simplify and speed up the process and to eliminate some existing bottlenecks.
Import of the Workbook filled by the Sub Contractor
When importing the workbook, it is now possible to detect if the progress of a given step of a given deliverable is lower than the one previously declared; a report can be generated (and saved in Excel) showing deliverables with Current Progress by step less than the previous declared progress.
The Import form of Deliverables data has a new User Interface:
Import of Deliverables Data – New Approach
Different options are available for the Deliverables data import: with option 1, User can load an Excel file (provided, for example, by Engineering) and partially or totally recover some Deliverable Data from it.
With option 2, it is possible to get existing Deliverables by using the “Get from Work Class” command and add/delete/modify Deliverable Data.
Automatic filling-in of missing information
If the Deliverables data have missing information and this information already exists in TMS, it can be automatically retrieved by using the “Auto Fill > All Linked Properties” command. Thanks to a pull-down menu available for each specific context, data can be inserted as shown in the screenshot below.
Validation checks performed by TMS
Before actually importing a Work Class, User can perform validation checks and simulate the importing process to double-check whether there are any errors.
Messages displayed can be sorted by errors, info, warnings.
Once the simulation returns no errors, the Work Class can be imported, as per instructions below.

Actually, there are a few nice new features you will be interested in. Let’s start with the Piping Class module and with a new procedure taking place at the end of the mechanical check of internal thicknesses. Up to now, you would end the process and get a report showing which thicknesses are suitable and which are not. Starting from this release – if you choose to – at the end of the check procedure, a form will be displayed allowing User to modify the unsuitable thicknesses.
The version 2.91 patch 5 (02.910.05.00) of our Puma5 software brings some big news to the Piping Class and the Mechanical Checks modules.
As usual, you will find the complete details in the What’s New document available for download from our Customer Care portal, however we give you here a glimpse of what you will find in Puma5 latest release.
Piping Class module – Piping Class form
There is a new ‘Copy’ button here and it is used to copy thickness tables among different classes belonging to the project in use (note: this can be done only among piping classes, whose associated ‘base material’ belongs to the same ‘Material subtypes (S2)’ section of the thickness dictionary).
