Windchill RV&S provides you with a streamlined method of merging a development path into its parent development path. The parent development path may be mainline, or it may be a development path itself. The merge destination just needs to be the parent of the child being merged into it. For detailed information on merging a child development path, see the Windchill RV&S Help Center.
