Official workflow is that you define the combinations manually. The Combine Loads has also the option to propose loads combinations (Automatic button). This can help you out to filter the combinations that are of interest.



The “Automatic Generation of Combination Proposal” will try to propose the combinations by using the MAXIMA-engine.
