Copy/Paste BDD results in duplicate parts in IBD?
« on: October 19, 2021, 11:10:04 pm »
I'm new to EA and to SysML, using 15.1.1512. I have a package structure like this:

Package 1
   - Element 1 BDD
   - Element 1
      - Element 1 IBD
      - Element 2 (Part)
      - Element 3 (Part)
Package 2
Package 3
   - Element 2
   - Element 3

I want to copy element 1 and its associated diagrams into Package 2. So I right-click on Element 1 BDD and copy, pasting ("smart") into Package 2. Everything looks fine. But when I go into Element 1 IBD and click Synchronize Structural Elements, I get duplicates of Element 2 (Part) and Element 3 (Part) (they were already on Element 1 BDD and copied correctly). I delete the duplicates (unlike the copied versions they are not interconnected), but Synchronizing duplicates them again.

I have checked relationships and parts/Properties for Element 1 Copy and there is nothing wrong. I've looked at t_object and, prior to synchronizing, I see one set of parts under Element 1 Copy, but after synchronizing I see the duplicate objects.

Where are the duplicates coming from? What link between Element 1 and Element 1 Copy am I missing?

Thanks!

Given the silence, I assume the duplication is unexpected and probably something wrong elsewhere in my model... like my generalization hierarchy is relating two elements that shouldn't be or something.

Any thoughts on what to look for?

No, don't do that.
