36compdev / compdevp PI – SMT tool shows both attributes by default Compdevp takes precedent over engineering deviations!When both columns are shown in SMT then only the compdevp contents matters.April 2000OSI Software, Inc.
37A blank value of compdevp causes the default compdevp to be applied regardless of compdev value. Remove the compdevp column to cause the compdev attribute to be appliedApril 2000OSI Software, Inc.
