||When updating an assembly, you are updating
the following elements:
- Assembly constraints.
- Assembly features.
- Knowledgeware relations.
- Weld features.
- Geometry of part document.
- Functional Tolerancing & Annotations features.

propagation and Compute exact update status at open
There are three update status when you are
designing an assembly, these status are computed from the current state of
||The assembly is updated: all
elements are up to date.
||The assembly is not updated:
one element at least is not up to date.
||The assembly update status
is unknown: there is not enough information to determine the update
status (updated or not). This status appears when an element is
contained into a component in visualization mode.
Update and Loop Design
In most cases, the application prevents you to create a loop design,
for example design Component1 from Component2 and reciprocally.
In some cases, where complex relational design (multi-level constraints and
in-context imported geometries e.g.) is involved, you can achieve to
create a loop design without warning.
For these cases, it may happen that the update cannot be completed at the
first attempt and the assembly keeps not up to date.
After several update attempts, a solution can be found if it exists.
Otherwise, to solve the loop design, you can make a relational design
analysis using the Edit > Links function.
