It would definitely be desirable to link categories across the models, just to make life easier for the model maintainers.
Probably makes the implementation more complex, though 🙁
I wonder what the multi-user implications of linking models would be…?
Ideally, changes to one model by one user would reflect in any other open linked models (including other copies of the just-changed model).
This would actually allow Quantrix to be used for collaborative model building and what-if over the network if it could be done, but boy, it seems hard to accomplish this reliably.
I am glad to hear that.
I have one Quantrix modeller that is used in each Concrete company. So, each Concrete Company is using the same Modeller, but after that I have to make some other analyses, for example I have to consolidate all the Concrete Companies.
I would construct a modeller that would give me the different performance of each Company and the total to the Group.
One idea: The consolidation Model would have a new category that would have all the companies; Other category, for example consumptions that has all the raw materials of each company (be advice that this category exists in the linked modeller, so the master modeller must add a new material every time a new material is added in one or two modellers used by the companies, and be advice that each company does not use that same raw materials).
With this I would know what types of raw materials are been used in each company and the costs, every time I make “Update Links”.
What do you think? If you did no understand let me know.
