Model Validation in MDG Technology for UPDM

The MDG Technology for UPDM provides model validation of UPDM models, validating and reporting errors against more than 160 different rules.

Configure Model Validation

Before being able to validate a model, you first have to select the rules to validate against. Select 'Package | Model Validation | Configure Validation Rules' and deselect the checkbox against all validation rules except for the UPDM set.

Perform Model Validation

Open a diagram or select either a Package or a number of elements in the Project Browser and select Package | Model Validation | Validate Selected Package (or press Ctrl+Alt+V). Validation results are displayed in the System Output window, which is opened if it isn't already displayed. To go to the element that caused a validation error, double-click the error message in the System Output window.
