Create powerful CMN/ZMF reports or charts without any programming

Dr Chgman's Z-Reports for reporting in ChangeMan ZMFCreating (new) reports (or customizing existing ones) with standard ChangeMan ZMF facilities is quite a challenge. ChangeMan ZMF is delivered with some out-of-the-box reports, but here are the typical issues to actually use them:

  • these reports are rather basic, due to which they are either not used, or (quite a lot) customized.
  • customizing those reports requires some knowledge about ChangeMan ZMF's (green) XML services, as well as REXX programming skills.
  • when upgrading to a new release of ChangeMan ZMF, such customized reports (written in REXX, and using XML services) may sometimes be quite a challenge.
  • etc.

The Z-Reports category covers all sorts of predefined reports (and charts) that were developed with AbitMORE SCM Reporting (=ASR), and which can be executed with the (free of charge) ASR runtime software (a prerequisite for executing any Z-Report). Using these Z-Reports will give you lots of additional reporting (and charting) capabilities as compared to using the standard reporting features that come with ChangeMan ZMF. Even better: no need for any REXX (or any other language) programming skills, and no need to know anything about the XML services. And via Z-Reports On Demand any of the Z-Reports can be tailored to perfectly fit your needs.
