It is quite tempting to throw all of your EKL code in a single Knowledgeware object– Action, Rule, KnowledgePattern, or Reaction. While convenient, this practice brings many drawbacks. Instead of describing what these are, I will focus instead on describing some programming principles and the benefits they bring. I learned the value of these principles […]
In this post we look at using B.I. Essentials to compute the weight of assembly products with multiple parts and materials as well as how to extract this information via EKL.
EKL rules can be used to manage geometric elements within UDFs, Powercopies, and Engineering Templates to provide a high level of automation of both internal parameters (such as nomenclature) as well geometric configuration. To understand this concept let’s first take a look at "geometric parameters" and how they can be used to create configurable models. […]
