  1. If an ASSEMBLY entry is input in the model, then a minimum of one INSTANCE I/O Options Entry should be present.
  2. Only one ASSEMBLY entry can be present in a model.
  3. When ASSEMBLY entry is present, the reading of the Bulk Data section is different.
    • Without ASSEMBLY entry, each part defined in the input deck is used in the model.
    • When ASSEMBLY/INSTANCE entries are present, each part named on ASSEMBLY and INSTANCE entries are used, potentially multiple times, and parts with unknown names (which are not listed on any ASSEMBLY/INSTANCE cards) are skipped.
