Using the "Create Derived Operation" users can create a new operation based on an existing operation. E.g. a parallel followed by a contour, but with same settings (stock to leave, tolerance, stepover, boundaries...). Essentially, "Create Derived Operation" is a duplicate, but with the strategy type changed. Parameters are not associative when using a derived operation, i.e. if you change the stepover in one operation, it will not be changed in the other.
