Why is data consolidation needed?


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
