||This task shows you how
to generate an integration report for a schematic driven design.
||If you are using a
customized project resource management file then you must insert a new
section available in the sample PRM file from Release 18. The section is
Design Validation, 2D3DIntegrationStatusReport Discipline Resources.
You need to insert this section in your PRM file or the Integration tool may
not work correctly. Adding this section allows the application to load all
the catalogs needed when processing objects from various disciplines.
also Integration Checks Explained.
||Open your design documents - both
the schematic and the generated 3D design. This step is not required, because you can
select documents to be checked as explained in
Step 3. It is recommended, however.
||Click Analyze >
Functional-Physical Integration > Function Physical Integration Validation
Report. The Functional-Physical Integration Report dialog
box opens. In the image below the user has made some selections.
||SELECTING FILE-BASED DOCUMENTS:
Select the Browse option and click the button Select Documents to be
Processed. Navigate to the directory where your design documents
located and select them. Both the schematic and the 3D document
generated from it must be opened. The File Name and Location will display in the
Functional-Physical Integration Report dialog box, as shown above.
It is recommended that you identify the schematic by clicking next to it beneath the column
2D, as shown above. This makes the process of generating a report
faster. If you want to
remove a document then select it and click the Remove Selected Document
from List button.
You can also use the Browse option to open the standard Browse toolbar,
which allows you to select documents that are already loaded in session.
To do this, click the Select Documents to be Processed button, and then
click Cancel in the File Selection box that displays. This will leave
the Browse toolbar open, allowing you to select a file or a loaded
session document. You will also be able to select documents from the Enovia database if they were loaded into the session.
The Impacted Documents column is only used, and the
Search for Impacted
Documents button is only available, when you are validating a document
that is in Enovia. See Impacted Documents
Explained for more information.
SELECTING DOCUMENTS IN ENOVIA:
Check the Enovia Action option and enter an Action
ID. An Action ID is
created in Enovia (see Enovia documentation to learn how to create one).
When you create an Action ID you associate one or more Enovia products
Click the button Search Documents Associated with Action. All documents
associated with that Action ID will display. Only documents that
are displayed in the File Name field will be checked by the
2D-3D Integration tool - impacted documents are not checked. If you want to
check impacted documents you must move them from the Impacted
pane to the File Name pane using the arrows below the pane.
If you want to filter the documents associated with the
by document name, then enter appropriate text in the Filter field. The filtered documents
will display in the File Name field.
If you want to search for impacted
documents then select a document in the File Name field and click the
Search for Impacted Documents button. Impacted documents will display in
the pane. Impacted documents are explained elsewhere in this section.
You can also move a document from the Impacted Documents pane to
the File Name pane, select it, and search for impacted documents.
||In the Disciplines pane,
select the disciplines for which you want to check your document. In the
Validation Checks pane select the checks. You can
also click the "Select All" buttons to select all disciplines or checks.
OK button will not be available until you have selected at least
one check, as well as all other relevant options.
||The Report File
field displays the name and location of the file identified for the
resource 2D3DIntegrationStatusReport in the project resource
management file. If you want to select another output file then enter
the name and location or navigate to it using the Select
Output File button. The folders specified in the field
must exist for the report to be generated.
Click the button Review
Existing Reports to see the report you generated previously. Only
the last report for the same report file is available.
If you check the option Update Existing
Report, and you have selected an output file, then the settings you
selected when you last generated a report using that output file will be
retained. This means you will not have to select documents in the File
Name, Disciplines or Validation Checks field - the settings you selected
the last time you generated a report will be used to generate the new
||Click the OK button.
Error Report displays if there is an error, or you may see
Validation Summary Reports dialog box, showing the result of the design check. A portion of the
dialog box is shown below. Click on one of the validation checks to see
details of the check.
The reports generated are: the
Report and an Error Report if there are any errors. Click on the
down arrow next to the report location field to select the reports.
||Click on one of the checks to
display the Violation Report, which shows all the violations for that
||You can perform the following
functions using the buttons available to you:
Reframe Physical Object: Can be toggled On and Off. When it
is on, and you select a violation, the object in which the violation
exists will be zoomed in. When it is off the object will be highlighted,
but not zoomed in and may not be visible in the viewer. You may need to
zoom in or out to view it.
View Document Selected: Allows you to open the document in
which the violation has occurred. This button is available after you
select a violation record, and if the document is not already open in
the viewer. Click on the down arrow to select a document. If the
selected document is a schematic, it displays in a browser window
as shown below. If the selected document is a 3D document then it opens
in the 3D viewer. The opened documents are for viewing purposes only. To
make changes to your design you must exit the command and open your
Open All Physical Documents: Clicking this button opens all
the documents associated with the violations contained in the report.
These documents are read only.
||You can enter a notation in the
Status column, such as after fixing a violation. Click
Save after you have made notations to save them in the report.
