Very often when working with EM (even if you properly close diagram and EM) and you try to open the EM project later, you get the following error: this diagram is currently locked by username. To release the lock username must close the diagram or you must delete the lock file on the SAS server.
To deal with that you need to remove phisycal lock from the server. People who work with EM are analysts or data scientist. They do not have no access to the phisycal server directory and need to ask for that their admins (very often).
The idea to improve SAS Software is to provide the solution for EM that prevents by creating the locks in EM or solution that allows to remove the locks by user from GUI.
