Does BJSFM analysis include a joint fitting factor in the analysis?

A fitting factor is not included in the BJSFM  analysis at Hypersizer revision V5.6.38. A future revision of Hypersizer may include this feature. Collier would most likely show a 1.15 fitting factor that can be toggled on and off.

A work around is to right click on the BJSFM analysis box in the FAILURE TAB and request a Minimum Margin of Safety = 0.15. The component will optimize correctly, and for static analysis the Margin of Safety displays red if less than 0.15.
