Resolving Membership Conflicts

This task shows you how to resolve membership conflicts that can occur if the  Update Compartment Membership command finds any ambiguities after running against a product or object in your document.
The Update Compartment Membership command calculates which objects belong to which compartment or compartments (doors and pipes for example, can be members of multiple compartments). The command runs on shown parts and equipment. Conflicts can occur if one or more compartments were not loaded into the document.  When this occurs, the Membership Conflict tab is included in the Update Compartment Membership  Results dialog box:

The diagram above shows an example where Cmpt-036 was not loaded into the document, so it is unclear whether the objects previously in that compartment are still there or if they have been moved to a different compartment.

1. To resolve the conflict, select one of the objects for which there is a membership conflict.

In the case of Elbow-017, the following message displays:

This conflict has occurred for any of the following reasons:

  • You still have Elbow-017 in Cmpt-36, but you did not load Cmpt-036 into the document before running the Update Compartment Membership command.
  • You have moved Elbow-017 into another compartment (Cmpt-40, for example), but you did not load Cmpt-40 before running the Update Compartment Membership command.
2. Do one of the following:
  • To keep Elbow-017 in Cmpt-36, review the Membership to Set column and confirm that Old is listed for that object. If New is listed, click on it to toggle it to Old.
  • To confirm a new location for Elbow-017, view the Membership to Set column for that part, and toggle it to New.

For each object listed, you can confirm its membership as described above.

3. If you know that all of the objects listed should be in their old or new compartment, click the All Old or All New buttons respectively.
4. Click OK to accept the updated compartment memberships.
