Why is data consolidation needed?

::: {.note} ::: {.title} Note :::

Consolidation means your model data from the simulator will be merged with the DB data into a more detailed data set. :::

  • When you start the mapping tool and read the installed models the current DB data will be used

  • This also applies when you create the model set (the current DB data are used)

  • But other users (or yourself) can change the DB data at a later time to:

    • Create new mappings
    • Modify/correct existing mappings
  • Applying those changes requires consolidating your model data with the latest DB data. There are multiple ways to accomplish this

    • Manually via the context menu: consolidation{.interpreted-text role=“ref”}
    • Automatically in background: backupdate{.interpreted-text role=“ref”}
    • During the model update for the client, see updatemodeldata{.interpreted-text role=“ref”}
