We're in the process of developing some internal training and best practices in regards to using BMX and MDX. I'd like some input from others as to how you are dealing with the design assembly models in the following areas:
Analysis models: Historically, we have created our design assembly models with traditional constraints and used these to feed the drawings. If any analysis was needed a copy of the assembly was made and was basically a single use disposable item. How are you dealing with this situation with MDO/MDX and BMX? We have two lines of thought here and the question we're trying to explore is whether to use the models with these new features in our drawings or continue with the older practice.
Drawings: Are you using the same models in the drawings which contain the Mechanism and Behavioral features? If so, how are you controlling/enforcing Initial Conditions? If not, how are you handling the configuration management of the extra model?
At this stage we are open to all suggestions as we have not rolled out any recommendations yet. I look forward to your comments.
