Are port parameters mandatory in autorouting

Hi everyone,

 

I've been working on autorouting using CreoSchematics3.0 in order to create the logical information (xml file) and CreoParametric2.0

Thing is, I have seen tutorials like this one which explains how to parameter ports: 

http://learningexchange.ptc.com/tutorial/2894/designating-connectors-with-entry-port-parameters

 

I just don't see the advantages of doing so...

When I want to route wires, I create a coordonate system in CreoParametric with a name "entry_1" for example, which corresponds to the port name in CreoSchematics. Therefore the link is done, and the cabling application recognizes the port of such part and what it corresponds to, and the aurouting works (wires route)

My questions is what is the usefulness of doing such work with the port parameters in CreoParametric, as described in the video from the link I gave.

 

I'd be thankful for some explanations

Best regards

Ambroise
