Create, update, and delete a standard type element

Create, update, and delete a standard type element

A type element is a model object that is key for one or more disciplines within your project. Examples include a ‘Requirement’, a ‘System Object’, an ‘Interface’, and a ‘Risk’. A type element can be enriched with type properties (e.g. a type property ‘Name’ for a type element ‘Requirement’). Further, type relations can be added to provide meaningful relationships between type elements (e.g. a type relation ‘has responsible’ that connects the type elements ‘Requirement’ and ‘Person’).

Create a new type element *

  1. In the workspace menu, click on Type graphview.
  2. In the toolbox, click on New type element. As a result, the dialog New type element is opened.
  3. In the dialog New type element, enter the settings of the type element.
  4. Click on Create. As a result, the dialog is closed and the new type element is created.
  5. Drag the type element to the desired position in the model.

Update a type element *

  1. In the workspace menu, click on Type graphview.
  2. In the model, click on the type element.
  3. In the toolbox, click on Edit. As a result, the dialog Type element settings is opened.
  4. In the dialog Type element settings, update the settings of the type element.
  5. Click on Update. As a result, the dialog is closed, and the type element is updated.

Notes:

  • Double-clicking the type element is another way to open the dialog Type element settings.
  • As an alternative to the Type graphview, a type element can be updated using the type list.

Delete a type element *

  1. In the workspace menu, click on Type graphview.
  2. In the model, click on the type element.
  3. In the toolbox, click on  Delete.
  4. In the dialog Delete type element, click on Ok. As a result the type element is deleted and is no longer shown in the workspace.

Notes:

  • As an alternative to the Type graphview, a type element can be deleted using the type list.
  • A type element cannot be deleted if it has one or more incoming relations from another type element.
  • A type element cannot be undeleted. The elements, including the property values and relations, are deleted alongside the type element.
