I am currently building a model in Capella and I was wondering what the common practice of multiplicities is in Capella. I do have some SysML knowledge, and there it is quite easy to specify the multiplicity for each block. There are in my opinion 3 different types of multiplicities:
- A small number of items (e.g. exactly 2 batteries)
- A huge number of items (e.g. 100 or more components of something)
- A range (e.g. when you have not decided yet whether you want to use 2 or 3 batteries you can specify a range, in SysML: [2 … 3])
I have seen in other posts on this forum that the common way is to use REC/RPL, but that seems only applicable for option 1, since it makes no sense to me to replicate 100 elements (option 2) and it seems not possible to specify a range (option 3).
For option 2 I saw in another post that you could also specify a pattern, but then you would still have 100 components in your model and that feels not very efficient.
I would be glad if you could clarify more on option 2 and option 3.
