The second new piece of functionality allows constituent generation / filter models to contain parameters which depend on a parameter from another generation / filter model. The concept is similar to that of functions whereby a parameter can be set from elsewhere in the system. Functions cannot be used here because the function manager is unable to influence the running order of models in a functional unit. So instead the design has a simple parameter linking tool which allows a user to connect one parameter on one constituent model to another parameter on another. The model parameter which is to be written too to must have been compiled with metadata indicating that its value should come from another constituent model’s parameter. The function described above is termed as “Define Constituent Model Linkage” in Source, and the linkage procedure and an example are outlined below.
