Component Lifing software for professional motorsport
LifeCheck v5.5.0 Available
We are pleased to announce the release of LifeCheck v5.5.0.  This is a relatively minor update but does add some significant new functionality aimed at extending Chassis Templates to better support Part Classes. In previous releases, where a part class was used within a chassis template, the chassis builder could not dig into the structure beneath the part class as this depended on the specific assembly selected.  From v5.5.0 onwards, it is possibly to associate a part with an assembly template meaning that the chassis builder can now determine the 'correct' structure of an assembly and use this to control the build the assembly.

This update also includes support for the specification of a 'category' for both part classes and templates.  By grouping part classes and templates into categories, this change makes it easier to select the correct item where a large number of part classes  and/or templates have been defined.

This update does require a database upgrade and as such should be scheduled so that all users can be updated at the same time.
Wheel Lifing Module Added
Lifing of wheels is complicated by the fact they are often changed during a session independently of any other changes to the Race Car.  Previously this caused issues within LifeCheck as sessions would need to be split just to record these wheel changes even if no other changes were made to the car build.  The Wheel Lifing module aims to address this limitation by splitting off the process of adding sessions / distance to wheels and wheel sets from the lifing of the chassis itself. 

Wheel sets are created with wheels assigned to these sets, then the distance covered during a race weekend can be apportioned to the wheel sets based on that recorded for the car as a whole.  New reports allow you to see which wheels were used within a specific session or in which sessions specific wheel sets were used.

Wheel Lifing is a separately licensed module to the main LifeCheck system.  Please consult Sales for a quote to add this module to your existing LifeCheck system.
LifeCheck Fault Tracking Module
as part of v5.4.1 announced below we now have a dedicated Fault Tracking module as an optional add-on to LifeCheck.  This is a fully featured module developed in conjunction with one of our LifeCheck users.  We have also produced a technical note which details teh functionality and operation of the fauklt tracking module which may be downloaded HERE.  Any comments or enquiries regarding this module are most welcome.
LifeCheck v5.4.1 Available
LieCheck v5.4.1 is now available for general release on a final beta basis.  We have completed testing this version against a number of user databases to ensure the upgrade process goes as smoothly as possible.  

It is important to note this is a major update and will cause a database upgrade to be performed.  As such all users will need to upgrade at the same time as older versions of LifeCheck will be unable to access the new database.  Your data will not be affected however it is higley recommended to perform a database backup prior to any major updates.

LifeCheck v5.4.1 is a cumulative update which includes a number of cosmetic and functional changes, such as the ability to set color coding limits for services, but also includes 2 important new optional modules, Fault Tracking and Wheel Lifing.  These have been developed in conjunction with LifeCheck users to ensure that the functionality meets and exceeds real-world requirements and adds real benefit to LifeCheck.  Please contact LifeCheck Sales for further details.
