    What is the Padlock functionality in Input section of a formulation?


      Hi all,


      I would know the exact behavoir of  padlock near an input in formulation spec.

      Example: I add a material (A) as inputs in a formulation (B) and I leave the padlock unlocked and then I calculate an Output (C).

      Now I update the material (A) that I used as input.

      In this case I need to refresh the formulation to re-calculate Output (C) new values or the values are refreshed automatically?

      Also, if I use material (A) in a certain number of formulations, I need to refresh manually all formulations?


      Please let me know if everithing is clear.

      Many Thanks.

          Hi Stefano,


            The padlock is used in ''Get Latest Revision' feature. here is the behavior:

          if the padlock is unlocked of an input in formulation spec, the system will always auto-update the input to the latest version with the 'Approved' tag in its WFA status. for example, you unlock the padlock of input A-001 in formulation A, then you Issue the input A-001 to input A-002, meanwhile, you workflow A-002 to a status which has assigned to 'Approved' tag, then the input in formulation A will automatically update to input A-002.


          In your example, I am not sure what update of the material did you make? the system will not automatically update any basis information of the input until you click 'Refresh' from tools.
