A Simplified Representation allows a user to remove details and components in a model in order to simplify the displayed information and free up system resources. The representations can be saved to different names and the user can switch between the representations as needed to more easily work with the models and their drawings.
A Combined State is used to specify a combination of view related items in the View Manager including: Simplified Representation, View Orientation, Style, Explode State, Sections and Layers. Therefore a Simplified Representation is just one of the view items that can be specified in a Combined State.
