How can I quickly edit multiple local resources at one time?
Performing system reliability/availability analyses in BlockSim, RCM++ or RBI often involves many Synthesis resources, particularly Universal Reliability Definitions (URDs) and models. The Batch Properties Editor enables you to quickly edit the resource properties in a convenient grid, rather than opening the properties window for each individual resource.
This can be useful when performing "what-if" analysis where you want to change the values used in many different resources at the same time.
For example, the following picture shows some reliability and availability results for a fictional chandelier that were estimated using the Failure Modes and Reliability Analysis (FMRA) feature in RCM++.
If you want to consider the impact of some proposed improvements to the bulb and socket, you can create a duplicate project and then use the Batch Properties Editor to quickly update the relevant properties for the "what-if" scenario.
To open the Batch Properties Editor, choose Project > Synthesis > Batch Properties Editor.
In the navigation panel on the left side of the window, choose the Models resource and update the relevant values by typing in the grid:
The changes are saved when you close the window or when you choose Home > Display > Refresh.
Finally, return to the FMRA view and re-simulate to update the results.
