Studying a Variant

The objective is to study a variant of a mock-up design in order to fix an incident without impacting the original design. It must be possible to load the original design and the associated variants in the same session.
Note the following limitations concerning the use of the Save as Frozen command.
  1. The user builds the mock-up in a CATProduct.

  2. The user invokes the SaveAsFrozen  command in order to duplicate the mock-up on a directory A, modifying the data names with a prefix:

    In the menu bar, select Tools -> DMU Data Flow -> SaveAsFrozen.

    The SaveAsFrozen dialog box appears.

  1. In the Save in text-entry field, enter the path of the directory in which you wish to save the data or click the Browse button to navigate to the desired directory.

  2. In the With the prefix text-entry field, enter a prefix that will distinguish your exported data from the actual data.

  3. Click the selection button and choose Save Products from the proposed save options list.

  1. Click the OK button to confirm.

    The active window becomes that of the variant you've just created.

    Note: The name of the active window will now be prefixed by the string you designated in the above dialog box.
