- How To
To start an export open a diagram in Enterprise Architect, that contains the element that shall be the root element for your FMEA structure tree.
In the diagram below you can see the system hierarchy. Use the element Sensor Chain as start element.
Open the context menu on the diagram on the start element and choose Extensions → LieberLieber Connector APIS IQ-Software → Start FMEA-Export
After the model got analysed the export dialog will be shown.
- Set the file export path
- Choose an export language for APIS IQ
- Selection the elements you want to export
- Click Start Export …
It will export the structural elements as FMEA structure tree, functional elements to FMEA functions and embeds the selected diagrams as SVG graphics for later use in APIS IQ.
With the hamburger menu you can select some export options and you will find some selection tools:
|Select all Diagrams of checked System Elements||Selects all diagrams showing one or more of the selected System Elements.|
|Deselect all Diagrams of checked System Elements||Deselects all diagrams showing one or more of the selected System Elements.|
|Select all Diagrams of checked Functions||Selects all diagrams showing explicit function elements, Explicit elemets are UML/SysML actions allocated to structural elements using an <<allocate>> connector.|
|Deselect all Diagrams of checked Functions||Deselects all diagrams showing explicit function elements, Explicit elemets are UML/SysML actions allocated to structural elements using an <<allocate>> connector.|
|Deselect All||Deselects all elements in the tree.|
|Select All||Selects all elements in the tree.|
|Select all functions||Selects all function elements in the tree and implicitly the structural elements containing the functions.|
|Deselect all functions||Deselects all function elements in the tree.|
|Select all Functions/System Elements of checked Diagrams||Selects all elements/function shown on the currently selected diagrams.|
|Export Functions as Characteristics||If you activate this option, functions are not exported as function elements to the FMEA. Instead of that they are exported as Characteristics.|
|Show diagrams||If this option is active the diagrams are shown in the tree. |
If the option is switched off, the diagrams are not visible in the tree any more and no diagram information is exported to the FMEA.
