Typing Connector with Association Block- How to Display Prop

Postby ricardo.reyes2@ngc.com » Fri Sep 11, 2020 10:49 pm

(Screenshots of diagrams are below text)
The Power Block Definition Diagram sets up the pattern that I am using. While the second image, the Cable Internal Body Diagram, defines the pin to pin internal connection for the Cable Association block.

In the Go Kart Internal Body Diagram I have the engine and the battery each with one proxy port. Both proxy ports have the type "DC IF", in which DC IF is defined in the Power Block Definition Diagram. I then use a connector to connect both proxy ports and type it "Cable". By typing the connector "Cable" I believe the connection should inherit the attributes defined in the Cable Internal Body Diagram.

Since the proxy ports match on both sides, the connection should inherit the attributes, but how do I get the connections to populate on the diagram? I was hoping there was an alternative to manually creating the connection proxy port by proxy port.

Any information regarding this is more than welcomed, thank you.


(The electrical is not completely correct, this just an illustrative example)

To clarify a little, what we are looking for is guidance on how to use Implied Relations or similar customization to show the relations between ports that should be implied through the application of an AssociationBlock type to a Connector. The AssociationBlock has connections defined on nested ports attached to participant properties.

Bjorn, Ricardo,

Using AssociationBlock as connector type semantically means that you connect these nested ports as defined on Association IBD.
However this information is not derived into a graphical representation.
Cameo Simulation Toolkit instantiates such model correctly and all these ports will be correctly connected at runtime.

In our next version for 2021, we have a plan to work on improvements for "implied" or "derived" relationships and we will gladly consider to support your case too.

Thanks Nerijus. I was hoping there was some feature of the Implied Relations engine that I didn't know about that could draw the lines (glad to see you are thinking of this for the future though).
