Are inactive elements (Is Active = False) included in the criticality analysis?

Problem ID#: 70802



No, inactive elements are not included in the criticality and segmentation analysis. You can verify this by computing the segmentation portion of the analysis. Next, go to the Segmentation Results tab and select the Highlight Segments icon. All segments will display in different errors and with a thicker line weight. You will notice that the inactive pipes are not included in the segmentation.

Note: In the Segmentation Scope tab of a Criticality study, you can use the "Subset" scope type to limit the criticality analysis to a subsection of the model. A selection set of that area will need to be created first.
