Include the capability to build “repeated blocks” across multiple diagrams. Currently the “repeat block” function is restricted to a single diagram.
Rational:Use of the Repeat block is extensive and valuable when comparing equipment in systems under different design conditions. The intended data flow from a Windchill BOM to Windchill Quality Solutions for RBD analysis invokes the use of individual blocks to represent equipment of identical specification and requires modelling in several ways over several diagrams. Currently unique identification demands that we represent the system components with individual naming which is out of context to the actual equipment. Also if we edit a block on one diagram which has the identical (yet unique named) block on another diagram they become out of alignment creating a huge effort of configuration control and possible human error.
