Customers have used Docu-Mint to assist in their SOX compliance efforts



After a software audit the auditors said we need better documentation of our software.


Docu-Mint has been used by many companies to satisfy that need before or after an audit.



I need to know all or selected objects used by commands, procedures, programs, menus, queries, files, user profiles...and an overview of the job's job flow.


Work with Used Objects module. By using the *EXC instead of the *ALL prompt, you can also limit the list to executable objects only for an overview of a job's job flow.



I need to know what positions are available for use in a file.


The Field Cross Reference module.



I need to find source and objects that do not match.


Orphaned Objects module



We have incomplete documentation on our programs. I need to have full understanding on how they work and relate.


Explosion reports.



I need to understand the flow of our system, what objects are called by a specific object, where used and how used, etc..


The Menu Explosion and CLP Explosion,Work with used Objects and/or Work with Where Used Objects modules.



My programmers need to know all programs that use a file when changes need to be made.


Utilize the Work with Where Used module, File / Program/ Procedure Cross Reference.



Sometimes I need reports, and other times I need quick on-line cross-referencing.


Docu-Mint gives you the facility for both. You can look at the on-line report then decide to print it.


The Problem Solver

  • Learning curve less than 1 hour.
  • Job explosions for: Commands, Menus, Procedures, Queries, User profiles and Programs.
  • File / Field / Program / CL Cross-Referencing.
  • On-line views: Work With Objects Where Used and How Used, includes all or generic searches.
  • Track the flow of programs with the RPG and CL indentation and explosion reports.

The Justification

Programmers will be able to focus on the changes they need to make, eliminating time consuming investigations.

Allows the user to change the source for all objects used within a project from a single display, avoiding the need to jump around. Use the time saved for other projects.

Navigation through the documentation is accomplished by just a few key strokes rather than wading through multiple reports. Familiar PDM-like interface decreases the learning curve.
