question-circle Change impact in diagrams

3 years 6 months ago #3870 by bmarty
Hello all,

happy to join the forum.
I have my first question regarding Modelio.

If we create diagrams like BDD and IBD, could we :

1- create a link between blocks in order if I change a base block all instance of it will change also in all BDD/IBD diagrams etc.?

2- if i create cascaded blocks and I have a change in one of the base block could I know where I will have an impact in my chain?

Thanks by advance for your support as I'm new to Modelio.

Hi bmarty,

I'll try to answer your questions if I get them right...

1. Changing something in a diagram will propagate the change to the other diagrams in which the element also appear.

2. In Modelio there is 2 ways to see what are the impact on your chain:

First, the 'Link Editor', with the 'Show Namespace Uses' button pressed:



A right click on the Namespace Use link (blue link) will display a list of the causes (impacts):



Second, the 'Automatic Depencency Diagram', an automatic diagrams which also shows you the Namespace Use links between elements :



Hope this help,
best regards,
cde.

Thanks for quick and previse answers.

Could we create a report with all impacted dependencies we have to check highlighted, in case of a change somewhere in the structure?
