Using Groups

The Groups feature lets you select biconnected elements, which are in a model that is connected and inseparable, such that if an arbitrary entity were removed, the model would remain connected. This shows you that there are at least two different paths to reach one entity from another entity.

You can determine whether your model is biconnected by clicking the Model Details button on the Tools ribbon and seeing if the "Is Biconnected" field is set to "True".

This feature also lets you set relationship betweenness clustering options. Click the Betweenness clustering button on the Groups ribbon of the Data tab. On this dialog box you can set minimum and maximum group count and designate which relationship property should be used as the weight. When you click OK, you will see the elements in your model that meet the requirements you set appear in a different color. Highlighting these elements can identify latent relationships in your data.
