Most of the time you will use two servers, one for testing and the other for production. Therefore you probably need to export models from the testing server and import it on the production server in order to use the models. But there are some difficulties such as the import on the other server because you probably don't want to import each model version as a new model but as new version of an existing model. The so-called existing model is the first version of a model you imported. 

The export of the model occurs as a normal export, so therefore it is not explained here, but you can have a look on topic Import/Export, where it is explained in detail. Whereas the import is explained in this topic as it differs a little bit from the normal import. But the first import is excluded from that, as it is a normal import, all imports of a new version of this model look like the following explanation:

On the production server click Import in the Publish tab under section Import/Export. In the opened window, navigate to the model you would like to import and click Open. Now you can select all models you want to import from the opened .fmex file.

Click Next to get to the screen where you can choose whether you would like to replace the old version on the production server with the new one or not. Use imported model means the old version on the production server is replaced by the new version from the import. The other option is the name of the model which has already been imported on the production server. In addition to that, it can also be configured whether the model should be imported as a new version or not.

If all configurations are made click Next.

With a click on Next one more time the import starts.

Clicking Finish closes the wizard. The imported model can be found under the Import scope in the sub-scope with date and time of the import.
