Can PVMT be used for model-based budgets?

Hi, I’m looking to see if anyone has experience using the model for budgets - perhaps via the Property Values Management Tool (PVMT) add-on?

  • I’m wondering if the model could become a viable replacement to Excel for technical budgets, at least where we have simple “sum of” relationships (such as with mass, and power consumption). Am I right thinking that the way to get the “sum of” properties values would be to use some sort of AQL syntax? Any good resources to learn what exacly that required code is?

  • Is there any way to migrate budget parameters over? Say we have 1000 worksheet cells of values, for loads of components, for different modes - Any way to get that table into Capella?

  • Did anyone find a way to have mode-dependent (or configuration dependent) budgets?
