A role in Solibri provides a pre-packaged environment loading and allowing easy access to resources that are required by the company/individual to carry out their role in model checking/quality assurance.
The role contains a set of pre-configurable resources, which include rulesets, classifications, information takeoff definitions. It's also possible to predetermine the screen layouts that the users will see when adopting a specific role. Generally, once organisations have set up their workflows and created their own resources, consistency can be controlled by ensuring that latest company resources are deployed through roles.
If a role has been set, you can see it in the lower right corner of the status bar.

If you open a role in the Roles window, that role will be set as your new default role.
