Overlap Validation solves application conflicts within a product. Duplicate Validation solves application conflicts between products
For application entries in ACES, when no submodel is selected, it is assumed the product has applications in all possible submodels. This means an application entry with no submodel selected will implicitly includes all submodels. This conflicts with any other application entries a product might have where a submodel is specified. Overlap Validation allows you to find and solve these application conflicts.

  1. Overlap Validation is selected
  2. The red text indicates NO submodel selection (all submodels implicitly included). Pre-Runner is displayed here because that is the submodel selected in the other application entry for that product. Hover over the red info symbol for more information.
  3. Note that every row in each grouping has the same product number. Overlap Validation solves applications conflicts within products. 
  4. Click the edit icon to resolve the conflict. This can be accomplished by adding a submodel for the application entry with no submodel selected, or deleting one or more of the application entries. The latter can be accomplished by clicking the delete icon within the application edit drawer:



Application entries can also be deleted in the All Products - Application Segment view:
