      Suppose you have a large model with parts of different materials, there will be a global maximum stress at some location. Maybe that global maximum stress is on a part with a high yield strength, so that part has not yielded.


      However, at another location, there can be a "local" maximum stress that is on a part with a low yield strength and that local stress has yielded so it is more important to review than the global model maximum stress.
