Benefits and Description
With the AAX license you can store the replace references in an external interchange assembly. This will allow you to replace the models in other assemblies.
Storing a pairing table as a separate interchange assembly:
- Advantage: You can easily find all interchange assemblies in which this component is located.
- Advantage: All possible candidates are offered for replacement.
- Disadvantage: It modifies the models (unwanted with library parts).
