DriveWorks produces reports at various stages during the specification process.
These reports give information on the results of all rules being processed for driving into the models, and if the result could be driven into the model or not.
There are three areas where a report is produced:
A Specification Report is produced from each Transition a Specification can move to after specifying. If the Default Specification Flow is in use this could be on:
When a Specification moves from one Transition to the next, another Specification Report is produced detailing the events that took place during the Transition.
The first Specification Report will always be listed as 'Starting Specification based on Project 'ProjectName' unless an existing Specification was created using the Copy Operation.
In this case the report will be listed as Copying Specification 'SpecificationName' based on Project 'ProjectName'.
If a Specification Transitions straight to Release there will only be this one Specification Report.
Subsequent reports are created for any operation performed on a Specification. If the Default Specification Flow is in use these could be:
Any number of these reports can exist depending on how many times a Specification had been edited or released. All reports are listed in the order they were created.
Specification Reports are found in the Specification Explorer from the following DriveWorks Pro modules:
The Specification Report contains information on what took place during the Transition the Specification passed through.
Depending on what was set to be processed during the Transition this is classed as the following:
A Specification Report can be exported so it can be viewed by anyone that has the DriveWorks Report Viewer installed (installs automatically with any DriveWorks Pro module listed above), without requiring to send your complete data set.
The Specification is exported as a .drivereport file.
A Generation Report is produced for each model generated.
The reports are available immediately after Manual Generation has completed through the Report Results dialog.
Double click any of the models listed to open the Generation Report in the report viewer for that model.
Generation Reports are found in the specification explorer from the following DriveWorks Pro modules:
The Generation Report contains information on what took place during the generation of that model and any associated Drawings.
Depending on what has been captured in the master model this is classed as the following:
A Generation Report can be exported so it can be viewed by anyone that has the DriveWorks Report Viewer installed (Installs automatically with any DriveWorks Pro module listed above), without requiring to send your complete data set.
A Model Insight Report is a report that can be created within Test Mode when generating Parts and Assemblies using queued interactive. This can be useful when troubleshooting a project as the report gives more specific information on the model generation.
A Model Insight report is found in the Specification Explorer within test mode in DriveWorks Administrator when running a Specification. To access this:
The Model Insight Report contains information on what will take place when generating a model and the different stages it goes through. Examples of things shown in the Model Insight Report are:
A Model Insight Report can be exported as a .drivemir file so it can be viewed by anyone that has DriveWorks Administrator installed (the reader is automatically installed with DriveWorks Pro). This is useful because it allows you to send just the Model Insight Report instead of your whole project.
To export the Model Insight Report:
