Last question, should I promote the original model to Production prior to the copy or does the timing not matter?

It does not matter.

 

All that putting a model in production mode does is lock down the ability to make structural changes. From a purely technical perspective, you can run an ALM sync from a standard mode model to another standard mode model, although I would not recommend it as it could get confusing which one is production, and you certainly do not want to accidentally make a change in the wrong model. 

 

I would personally do it immediately after copying the model, as that would require the least number of steps, but from a technical perspective, it does not matter one bit. I would certainly make sure to do this before making any other changes to make sure that changes are not made in both models.

@mEEhan011 ,

 

Just make sure before you make the copy, IF you are using Production Data lists, that they are set correctly.
