The rollup calculations are among the most common use cases in systems engineering. System modelers want to calculate total mass, cost, power, or another system dimension, based on individual values of all the parts in the model. The pattern can recursively propagate the particular value up a hierarchy of components characterized by this value.
The Rollup PatternWizard allows your to calculate the total cost, mass, power, or another system metric of elements in model. Different types of pattern Blocks can be created to suit the calculation needs. The Rollup PatternWizardautomatically applies pattern Blocks (using the Generalization) to a single Block or multiple Blocks recursively and creates property values.
To open the Rollup Pattern Wizard
Right-click the Block for which you want to apply a pattern Block and select:
Tools > Apply Rollup Pattern, if you want to apply pattern Block (s) for the selected Block.
Tools > Remove Rollup Pattern, if you want to remove pattern Block (s) from the selected Block.
The Rollup Pattern Wizard consists of two steps:
Selecting/ removing the pattern Block
To select/remove the pattern Block (s)
From the Select Block dialog choose rollup pattern Block which you want to apply/ remove.
You can select multiple pattern Blocks.
Selecting the options
Apply Rollup Pattern Box
Applies the pattern Block recursively.
Set Role Name
Sets the role names of Part Properties.
Set Subsetted Properties
Sets the Subsetted Properties of the Part Properties.
Create Value Properties and Redefine
Creates and redefines Value Properties.
Remove Rollup Pattern Box
Recursively Remove Rollup Pattern
Removes the pattern Block recursively.
Remove Role Name
Removes the role names of Part Properties.
Remove Subsetted Properties
Removes the Subsetted Properties of the Part Properties.
