How to Derive a Model

You derive a new model from an existing model and transition from one design layer to another using the Derive Model Wizard.

The Derive Model wizard includes five panes that let you do the following:

After you create a new model using the Derive Model wizard, the model appears in the Model pane in the Model Explorer and the model has a list of associated model sources. The model source that is created in the child model is only for the link between the new child model and the parent model from which it was derived.
