Defining Design Parts


Follow this procedure to define a new design part beneath the selected design part (the parent).

When you create a new design part, a breakdown relationship forms between it and the parent design part. The new design part automatically inherits the role assignments from its parent, unless you make explicit role assignments on that design part. See Assigning Roles for instructions on how to assign roles to a design part.
