|E-Media: Desktop (includes "simple" spreadsheets)
||A database such as Microsoft Access may contain queries, as long as it does
not provide a "user interface." Similarly, a Microsoft Excel file may contain
formulas and trivial scripts as long as it does not provide a "user interface"
and is "simple" (i.e., no macros, hidden cells, rows or columns); all calculations
can be easily viewed and verified on no more than three worksheets without
||Content-only website utilizing native SharePoint functionality.
|Computer-Based Training (CBT)
||CBT's are EPRI training products that EPRI uses to assist with technology
transfer. CBT's are developed in either Adobe Captivate, Articulate Storyline
or Articulate Presenter using EPRI Templates.
||Spreadsheets with macros, hidden rows and columns, protected functionality,
||Software that is installed the end user's computer. This includes traditional
compiled software developed in a programming language like C++ or code developed
in a scripting language like Python. In many cases, this software includes
a graphical user interface, but this category also includes command-line
computational tools run on the desktop.
||Software that is intended to be intsalled on a server in the enterprise. Typically,
these are installed by the end user's IT staff. The software might not have
a user interface other than installation and administrative functions, or
it might be a web app that runs on the member's Intranet. This category does
not include client workstation use of a corporate database, which would typically
be categorized as Desktop Software.
|Software Implemented via a Commercial
||Software that is created inside another commercial tool. A user interface
is created using the features of the commercial tool, such as Microsoft Access,
Microsoft Excel, or MATLAB. In general, the end users will need to procure
a specific version of the underlying tool in order to use software provided.
||Software that does not operate by itself, but is only useful when used in
combination with other software tool. For example, this might include source
code for a FORTRAN subroutine that describes material behavior that will
be used by a finite element package. Or it might be a dynamic link library
(DLL) that can be used by a thermohydraulic tool. This category is very similar
to products developed on a commercial platform, but in this case the software
usually has no user interface, has no immediate standalone use, and might
not be limited to a single commercial tool.
||Any software that runs through a web connection. This type includes externally-facing
web sites, regardless of host location, that will be accessed by members.
It also includes web services, which are "subroutines" without user interface
that are accessible to other programs via the web. Some web sites might be
content-only but still fall into this category.
||Mobile apps include all software intended to be deployed on a phone or tablet
style computer. This software usually needs to be deployed via a "store"
or some other specialized distribution channel.
|Billable Service Agreement (BSA)
||Per terms of agreement.
