PDMS Design Error Message lists

This chapter PDMS Design Error Message lists error messages specific to DESIGN. These messages have a message number beginning with 61. Any other messages that may be output are not described here as they are not specific to DESIGN.

Note that in the following element_identifier denotes an element name or (for unnamed elements) an element reference number. The latter is a ‘system’ number which is assigned automatically whenever an element is created.
