        Multi User Edition :

        This edition is recommended for organisations who need to manage a group of individual licences. A Licence Manager (which comes with the PowerFactory software) provides and manages the licences, which are accessed by the individual users via the local network. The number of concurrent users is limited according to the number of licences that have been purchased.

          Team Edition :

          This edition is recommended for multi-user groups requiring access to centralised project data and data sharing among group members. It features a multi-user database (ORACLE, SQL Server), with automatic database housekeeping (e.g. schedulable overnight) and integrated project backup tools. The users benefit from the PowerFactory team-working tools such as Master Project management, Project Versioning, Project Deriving along with Project Compare and Merge tools, which facilitate concurrent model building and data entry. The Team Edition comes with a Licence Manager (same as for the Multi-User Edition) and the PowerFactory Administrator user can configure individual user accounts or user groups in order to manage their access to specific licence modules.

          Database: Multi-user DBMS (Oracle or SQL Server)
